RFPG alleges breaches of Code by VicForests in the Rubicon Forest

RFPG wrote to Minister D'Ambrosio on 22 July 2016 expressing concern regarding forest harvesting in the Rubicon State Forest (letter here).  The extraordinary scale and intensity of current logging in the Rubicon State Forest, combined with the extensive impacts of the 2009 fires, are jeopardising forest values and environmental services, especially biodiversity including the survival of Leadbeater's Possum, water yields, carbon sequestration, scenic beauty, and forest tourism, recreation and educational opportunities.
