The forest system

Churchward, B.C. (1978) The forest system. The West Australian, 16 October 1978. [Publication] [Special Collections]


A response from Barbara C. Churchward, general secretary, the Tree Society, to the Conservator of Forests, Mr. B.J. Beggs September 27.
The letter states the Tree Society hopes that the concern by Mr. Beggs for scientific exactitude has not ignored the constructive intent of an earlier letter by L.S. Walder that the spread of dieback is accentuated by man's activities within the forest system.
The preservation of diverse and large areas of high quality jarrah forest is a prerequisite for meaningful dieback research.
Bauxite mining and its expansion will effectively disallow such preservation unless forest quarantine measures are strengthened and widened to encompass areas of bauxite exploration and mining as well as other activities that accelerate the spread of dieback disease and forest destruction.
