I remember working in Tasmania 24 years ago on a project with APPM, but am glad that the trees win.

So nice to hear that groups/people finally come to positive agreements. Makes life so much nicer. I wish the positiveness would rub off on the rest of World's problems. Thanks Cal

Wonderful news. Now if the mining industry would only stop destroying Tasmania that would be cool.
