To really understand what VicForests propose to do to the forests you need to see it for yourself. We have created these Google KMZ files to download into Google Earth and drill into the real effects of the logging on the forests.
Download Google Earth if you don't have it.
If your browser does not open the files automatically in Google Earth. Download and save the KMZ files, and then open Google Earth and then go to dropdown menu beneath 'file', click 'open' and browse to your saved KMZ file.
