Glenn Britton doesn’t mince words when talking about the pressure being applied by environmental groups in Tasmania to move the State’s forestry industry entirely to plantation timber.

“They’re essentially saying the old ways of forestry are gone, no-one wants them any more, so we have to move into plantation timbers, new timbers, new ideas, new products,” says the managing director of Smithton-based Britton Timbers.
“Quite frankly, that’s the biggest load of bunkum I’ve ever heard, because the first issue – particularly for Britton Timbers – is that there’s no plantation timber available for us to harvest.”
