Back in 2013 The Victorian National Parks Association called out an irreconcilable difference in the practices of the native firewood industry….
“Collecting firewood from the forest is a great Aussie tradition, but what we see as ‘dead wood’ and fuel, birds, mammals and insects use as shelter and food sources.”
The industry has been trying to clean up its act but just North of Melbourne something seems to be rotten in the Strathbogie State Forest.
Last year local environment group, Our Strathbogie Forest, blew the whistle on VicForests saying its primary business was sending perfectly good hardwood saw logs from the pristine Barjarg Flat Forest to be sold as low-value firewood.
Fair Food's other reason for stocking sustainable firewood came from hearing farm-foresters and millers complaining about the mountains of mill off-cuts and plantation thinings they were burning because they didn’t have anyone to buy them.
