Evidence for outcome assessment

The State Government has made a historic decision to end the logging of native forests by 2024.

The decision is said to preserve at least an additional 400,000 hectares of jarrah, karri and wandoo forests.

According to Member for Darling Range Hugh Jones, two million hectares of native forests will be protected for future generations.

“Climate change is affecting the sustainability and growth of our native forests and it is critical that we preserve them to support regional communities, protect biodiversity, and safeguard important carbon sinks,” he said.

Jarrahdale is home to parts of the only jarrah forest in the world, which extends down to the south west of WA.

Save Our Jarrah member Jan Star said this new legislation is a step in the right direction.

“The writing has been on the wall for some time,” she said.

“The industry is not making profit from logging, and the trees that they are taking are getting smaller and so the forest is not recovering from the logging.

“It just doesn’t make sense in terms of carbon storage.

“Jarrahdale has been terribly effected by the logging.”

Member for Darling Range, Hugh Jones said from 2024 onwards, timber taken from WA’s native forests will only be from forest management activities such as ecological thinning for forest health and clearing for approved mining operations, such as Alcoa.

SAVE OUR JARRAH: PRESERVE THE NORTHERN JARRAH FORESTS’ ECOLOGY FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR COMMUNITY AND FUTURE GENERATIONS.

WE HAVE THE POWER TO IMPACT OUR FUTURE, AND WE’RE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT

Google map of Myara and Jarrahdale – plight area (the yellow area south of Jarrahdale) is where Alcoa is currently mining bauxite.

The Northern Jarrah Forest is in imminent risk of losing important biodiversity, cultural and heritage values. Save Our Jarrah strives to protect a large section of the Northern Jarrah Forest near Jarrahdale, Western Australia for future generations.

The natural, cultural, environmental and economic attributes and characteristics of this small area of the Northern Jarrah Forest is worthy of recognition, protection and preservation. Values that are highlighted by the proximity aspects of tourism, a range of trails activity, equestrian pursuits, honey production, value added timber production, stream zone and water retention assets.

These assets are reflective of the appreciation the local and Western Australian community has for this area and it should be quarantined from any future mining and traditional logging operations. Some of the groups, organisations and areas adversely affected by mining and traditional logging are:
Walking and cycling Groups
Orienteering and equestrian groups
Local and WA history attributes
Wildflower and honey producers
Fine furniture Loggers, makers or producers
Environmental and scientific groups
Landcare
Stream Zone and Water Protection
Amenity and Safety

Save Our Jarrah represented by the Jarrahdale Forest Protectors and supported by the broader local and Western Australian community are seeking an exemption from Alcoa’s mining operations for the area ‘Myara North’.
