It’s time to let our native forests do their real job again as homes for wildlife, carbon stores and protectors of soil & water View newspaper ad asking Nippon Paper:  end native forest woodchipping.

The Nippon Paper owned South East Fibre Exports chipmill at Eden, NSW has exported a million tonnes of woodchips a year in recent years, but Australia already has enough plantation hardwood to stop logging of natural forest.  
It does not use "waste wood," only whole logs.
Forests are clear felled for the sole purpose of chipping and exported, mostly to Japan, to become paper.
Every tree was once home to hundreds of forest dwelling creatures, some facing regional extinction due to woodchipping.
Worse still, taxpayers subsidise this unnecessary
industry.
