According to Australia’s Forestry Minister and Deputy Premier John Barilaro, the forest industry has begun salvage operations in the 50,000 hectares of softwood plantations in the South West Slopes area. The good news is that most of the merchantable burnt timber is expected to recoverable over the coming year. Barilaro went on to say “Over the coming 12 months, these salvage operations will provide a boost to the region, as well as timber resources essential for rebuilding NSW’s houses and infrastructure.”
