Dear Sirs,

As you are aware, Mitsubishi Paper Mills has announced that it will stop using woodchips sourced from old growth forests. Their new policy is to buy only woodchips "sourced from plantations or second growth forests of environmentally benign, and reclaimed wood."

While the Australian Government recently agreed to protect some of the world's tallest hardwoods and old-growth forests of Tasmania, old growth logging in the state has not been phased out yet and will continue at the rate of 2600 hectares per year. Precious old-growth forests are still severely under threat and will be eradicated before too long unless strong decisive action is taken. These ancient forests are the womb of life and are required to maintain both local and global ecological stability.

We are writing to you to ask you to take a lead as Mitsubishi has done and please help us save these precious areas for Tasmania and the rest of the world.

We strongly urge you to implement a policy to ensure that your company does not buy any woodchips from Gunns sourced from old growth forests.

I look forward to your reply concerning this matter.

Yours Sincerely,

NAME ADDRESS
