LNV welcomes the assurance from Min. Speakman, following intense community lobbying that the proposed steep land cable logging trial is not anticipated to be included in the new logging rules. It rules out this damaging practice in the short term and is a victory for commonsense.
Cable logging is a huge threat to our river system and water quality. Downstream water users and farmers stand to be most effected by the inevitable sedimentation movement which will be caused by this industrial scale logging on our steepest upper catchments slopes over 30 degrees. These slopes have been protected from logging for over 20 years due to their highly erodible nature. They are refuges for endangered species like the koala and the big old trees which hold the hillsides together and filter rain runoff. Now Forest corp want to cable log them because they have run out of timber supply due to overlogging! Its a no brainer!
Cable logging strips our forests bare and causes erosion, water damage and even landslides - but Mike Baird's Liberal National Government is trying to let it ba...ck into NSW forests.
Cable Logging has been banned in NSW for more than 20 years, and if returned to government, we'll stop it again. We need a sustainable forestry industry - not one that causes permanent damage to our environment.

Our rural communities need your help to protect Australia's precious groundwater.
We currently have important national laws to protect this life-giving resource... but next week the Abbott Government will ask our Senate to vote to trash those laws and hand over the reins to the state governments.
We can’t let this happen.
It will become easier for conflicted state governments to push through mining and coal seam gas projects, and instead of federal oversight with impacts on nature, environmental monitoring will be at the whim of the states.
Farmers’ livelihoods in regions like the beautiful Pilliga in New South Wales will be at risk. Rural communities are at risk. Forests, plants and animals reliant on groundwater are at risk. The Outback's life-giving springs and Great Artesian Basin are at risk.
Here’s how you can help: http://bit.ly/1BEwm6d
