And the "tindalls" are most certainly not found in the south west Phil.

But I agree, anyone that is cutting down King Billy Pine or Fagus should be fined the maximum amount that is legally possible.

For anyone that doesn't know, King Billy is an endemic species of conifer found only in sub-alpine/alpine regions of Tasmania and grows at an extremely slow rate. We have lost over 60% of the entire population since European settlement. In an enviroment like the tyndalls, it probably would grow at a rate of less than 2mm in diameter per annum, probably much less.

"Fagus" is one of the most amazing trees in the world (also endemic to sub-alpine/alpine areas of Tas). The only cool temperate deciduous tree in Aus and one of the oldest vascular species on earth (it was the dominant species in Antarctica and Patagonia in the days of Gondwana).The idea of harming any one of these ancient trees is beyond belief. I hope Parks track these arseholes down and prosecutes. But I doubt they will.
