Fined for illegal logging (NSW)

Jan 16, 2024

The Manning River Times writes that the Forestry Corporation of NSW has allegedly harvested protected trees in Coopernook State Forest, resulting in a legally binding Enforceable Undertaking with the NSW EPA, requiring the company to contribute $500,000 towards four environmental projects. NSW EPA Director of Operations Steve Orr stated, “These trees were in a protected riparian exclusion zone, close to streams, so removing them had the potential to destabilise the soil and cause potential harm to the aquatic system as well as reduce available habitat for fauna”.
