No final peace deal yet in TasmaniaTasmanian forest peace deal negotiators have again failed to reach a final agreement on Monday, but say they are making significant progress. Environment and forest industry groups say they need another four to six weeks to decide how much of Tasmania's forests to protect from logging.
They say they have a loose agreement on how much forest to protect from logging, which will be modelled by Forestry Tasmania to determine the wood supply available under the potential deal. The groups will not release estimates of the forest in contention but they have agreed to move towards a greater use of plantation wood.
