Blue Derby Wild are taking the unlawful logging of Krushka's forests, and all Tasmania's public native forests, to the Supreme Court.
Our claim being tested in the Supreme Court of Tasmania is that Krushka's forests have been logged unlawfully by the Forest Practices Authority and Sustainable Timber Tasmania. Should this case be successful this will have huge implications for all native forests logged in Tasmania.
