Using East Gippsland as an example, a reduction in sawlogs does not mean an equal reduction in woodchips - f'rinstance, while there's been a 20% drop in sawn timber (from market forces), the chip volumes have increased 100%! In Tambo forests next door, they've had a 700% increase in chips! Next year's plans for log volumes will see 20% of logs sold for sawing and 80% for chipping. So a 43% cut on 20% won't make a huge difference. Eleven and a half thousand hectares are still on the drawing board for obliteration.
