Following the layoffs of many sawmill workers in the Scottsdale region, after the closure of Gunns' two sawmills, David Leigh has changed horses. The controversial documentary A WORM in the APPLE showed the problems faced by the forest industry, under Gunns Timber Ltd. Now it is time to help put things right. Thirty years of forest destruction for wood chips has seen jobs lost at the rate of 80% in the forests. A further decline in employment has resulted from the industry changing to monoculture plantations. There are new and better ways of supplying fibre to the world and trees are not sustainable. David Leigh has written a submission to help solve some of the problems as a way of putting something positive into the arena, A GROWING FUTURE shows ways of using existing skills and knowledge and the resources available in the North East, to rebuild a better future for all.
