The Timberlands public relations effort is also claiming that we need to be using all resources sustainably including agriculture, and urban consumption. This line is designed to solicit the sympathies of environmentalists around the country who are dedicated to conservation in a very general sense. It is an attempt to divert people’s attention away from:-
  1. what Timberlands are doing (e.g. the heavy logging of rimu in the Buller, the logging of Okarito and Saltwater forest, and the beech logging in the Maruia);
  2. what they have done (i.e. clear felling at Ianthe); and,
  3. what they plan to do (i.e. a massive beech scheme).
