    The Forest Wars

    Since colonisation, Australians have been frantically logging our native forests as if our lives depend on it.

    Our lives do depend on the forests — but on keeping them, not destroying them.

    In The Forest Wars (2024), world-leading forest expert Professor David Lindenmayer AO uncovers the grim truth about what is happening in our tall eucalypt forests.

    The book lifts the lid on destruction of native forests by government corporations and the logging industry that is making bushfires worse, killing wildlife and costing taxpayers millions, for the sake of woodchips for export.

    Professor Lindenmayer reveals an unholy alliance between state forestry, the timber industry and some unions.

    Industry has been known to intimidate some people that have questioned what they are doing. Worse still, even where native forest logging is supposedly ending, efforts are being made to continue under a different guise.

    Forests purify our drinking water. Forests are our best hope to reduce carbon emissions. Forests preserve biodiversity.

    It's time we realised the value of leaving native forests standing.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to join him in conversation on the future of our forests.
