Native forest logging in Victoria will end in December, six years earlier than previously planned, after the state government decided severe bushfires and legal campaigns had made it economically and environmentally unviable. The announcement by the Andrews Labor government in Tuesday’s state budget follows a landmark supreme court judgment last November that the state-owned logging agency, VicForests, had broken the law by failing to protect endangered species. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2023/may/23/end-of-native-logging-in-victoria-a-monumental-win-for-forests-say-conservationists up.gif

Unfortunate they broke environmental laws. Well, it's a good thing many industries are mostly paperless. It might be a boost to private landowners whose crop are used for paper mills.

It was an ancient mill and it was inevitable that they shut down. There's no shortage of private timberland that supplies the other mills and there's more than enough pulp supply from Indonesia. Closer to home, some pulp mills in Canada that have been shut down for more than a decade are getting ready to start up again because of an improvement in North America market conditions. A lot of mills here shut down, dismantled their equipment, and sold it all to China.

Several mills I am aware of in BC were dismantled as well, others were mothballed. After working at several mills, I wonder just how well a decade long idled mill can be turned on. There’s serious issues with the pressure vessels and boilers
