This huge tree is typical of those on the Errinundra Plateau


If the giant trees don't give it away, the presence of groundcover and understory mark this as old-growth


One last Sassafras remains burnt in what was a rainforest gully


This ancient tree is doomed


Forest fucker number 1


The gradings on these logs show the species, diameter and length. CT=cut-tail ash C=sawlog D = woodchip


Looking up a forest giant, home to gliders, owls, possums and parrots


Awesome old-growth, threatened species habitat, rainforest site of significance...clearfelled for woodchips


Rainforest species, Sassafras and Soft Tree Fern, lie bulldozed in a heap. Where's the buffer?


This snig track cuts through Mixed Forest and within 40m of rainforest - both breaches of the Forest Code of Practice


Here the snig track has gone through Mixed Forest and Rainforest and is within 20m of a flowing creek - blatantly illegal


Proof that Powerful Owls roam this patch. After eating a glider and digesting the meat, it chucks up the fur and bone


When trees like this are cut, left and burnt, how can industry complain about lack of resource? Note person at end of log.


It was at this point that I decided we had to blockade.
