Mt Jersey Giants - not giant enough

16 March 2013

This giant tree stump is all that remains of a tree hundreds of years old and using VicForests prescriptions, should have been protected

In March 2011, VicForests was crowing about its new giant tree protection policy (read our 2011 article here). VicForests said their new policy on giant trees will also "see every effort made to protect trees which are greater than 3m in diameter". That’s 9.4 mts circumference.

Protesters at Mt Jersey’s old growth forests currently being clearfelled have measured the circumference of tree stumps from 7.15m, to 10.9m.
