The logging of Wedding Bells State Forest

The Hon Katrina Hodgkinson replied to Greens MP David Shoebridge about his concerns about the logging operation in Wedding Bells State Forest. I understand that no one claimed the forest was old growth forest so why claim we said it was.  Has the invitation to meet with environmental representatives be accepted? There is no comment in this letter re the fouling of the creek with logs. There is no concern expressed for the Oxleyan Pygmy Perch habitat.

Forests case over endangered species
Following dozens of fines for environmental breaches on the North Coast in recent years, Forests NSW is now being prosecuted in the Land and Environment Court for its failure to protect endangered species. 

(North East Forest) Alliance spokesperson Dailan Pugh said he was frustrated proceedings had taken so long but was relieved it was now under way.

"Forests NSW and their minister have repeatedly claimed that they did nothing wrong (so) we welcome this opportunity for the truth to be tested in court," he said.
