A photo of the logged tree stump that was radio carbon dated.
This tree, and the forest it used to be part of, pre dates white settlement in Australa by 279 years. Logging these irreplaceable forests is an abomination sanctioned by the Brumby Government.
Logging has been temporarily halted when threatened species of possum and freshwater crayfish were found in Brown Mountain's forests.
The Brumby government should immediately protect all remaining old growth forest available for logging, as they promised the would do in 2006.
