Timber Centre for South East on Hold

Posted on: October 27, 2009

One would have thought that the loss of sub tropical forest timber from fires and demand in the rest of the world would have been the core strength of the proposal to bring all the heads together in one place in Mt.Gambier. Fires in Queensland at the moment should awaken to the fact that thousands of tons of CO2 that has been absorbed by the vegetation growth over 50 years or so has gone back into the atmosphere in as many hours.

The sheer weight of population, the UN says over 9 billion by 2050, needs to be housed as well as fed and that housing, however primitive, needs timber much of which will be cut from virgin forests, not plantations and right there is the problem for Environmental Agencies. Our Mr, Rudd says we should have 35 million.

It makes no sense however,to ignore the future for either timber or food by cutting the opportunity for access to scientific and practical solutions, quite the reverse applies. Radically expanded on farm plantations.in any form that will fit without encroaching on areas for food will need the best scientific and updated practical advise for growth, harvest, and replant to maintain the maximum CO2 absorption, and and it needs to be available in more than a glossy folder printed by the bureaucracy which will never replace one on one exchange of knowledge and experience .. .
