Despite industry and political spin, our Australian native forests continue to be destroyed. The many mythologies put forward in defence of continued logging are contradicted in detail by the facts and evidence.

In this podcast, David Lindemayer, AO, distinguished professor, forest ecology, Australian National University (ANU) and author of the book ‘The Forest Wars: the Ugly Truth About What’s Happening in our Tall Forests’ (Allen & Unwin 2024) puts forward a positive vision for our forests that can provide sustainable benefits to our economy and our ecosystems.
