Next forest on the chopping block: 127 hectares of spotted gum forest approved for logging 14 Oct 2021 – Active next step
Compartment 146, east of Mogo, lies south east of Dogtrap Road (~2km east of Princes Hwy) and straddles the Tomaga River at one point. It is so close to the Mogo Zoo you can hear gibbons, lions and lyrebirds as you walk around.
It is the only remaining unlogged forest in the area (see brochure below). Despite the fires, and in defiance of the NSW Environment Protection Authority post-bushfire conditions Forestry Corporation NSW is going to log it unless we speak out! Logging will destroy the forest across the existing Kona trail and the new Mogo mountain bike trail along Dog Trap Road being funded $3.5 million (taxpayers) which includes $750k from ratepayers.
