Statement on Australian Sustainable Hardwoods

I am disappointed that a solution could not be reached between ASH and the government that would secure the mill’s long term timber supply, and therefore, the long-term future of the mill. We will continue to strongly support ASH, their workers, and their future in Heyfield.

Whilst I note the government’s comments about their commitment to the mill remaining operational, this proposal does not change the overarching issue of ever constricting timber supply, due to ongoing transfer of production forest to parks and reserves, and the future of the whole industry in Victoria.
