The ugly truth about what’s happening in our tall forests.

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 our native forests standing.

World-leading forest expert Professor David Lindenmayer exposes the unsettling truth about what is happening in our tall eucalypt forests. Despite what we are told, logging makes bushfires worse for decades after the chainsaws stop, and kills iconic animals and birds each year in droves, driving many species closer to extinction. The trees that are logged mostly end up as paper and cardboard. And it’s not profitable: taxpayers are funding it.

In The Forest Wars, Lindenmayer reveals an unholy alliance between state forestry, the timber industry and unions, and much more.

Don’t miss David and Bob Brown in conversation at the Hobart Town Hall.
