Posted October 02, 2018 08:08:52 “There’s no doubt there’s been a lot of misinformation in the media about the timber wall,” Mr Kibby said.
There’s a lot more at stake than just a timber wall.””
They’re not protecting the environment, they’re just doing it to get their profits.”
There’s a lot more at stake than just a timber wall.
“Mr Kibbels company has been criticised by environmental groups, who said the wall would destroy native trees and cause damage to the ecosystem.
But he says the wall is a great investment for the industry and is part of a broader effort to help manage the bushfires that have ravaged the country.”
We know that the bushfire season is one of the worst in the world, but the timber industry is doing a lot to help us out,” Mr Gubbins said.”
The timber industry has done a lot over the years to protect native species.
We have more than 20 million tonnes of timber harvested in the country and we’re working on a project where we’ll create a native tree habitat on the border with the Great Barrier Reef, that’s about 30,000 hectares.
“They’re looking at that, we have a lot going on.
We’re looking to bring that to bear on the Great Australian Fire season and it’s going to be one of those projects that we’re looking forward to.”
The ABC has contacted the WA Government for comment.
