"The past is never fully gone. It is absorbed into the present and the future. It stays to shape what we are and what we do."
Sir William Deane, Governor-General of Australia, Inaugural Vincent Lingiari Memorial Lecture, August 1996.

The Biggest Picture of All

This article is still to be developed.

"Foresters truly believe that they manage renewable resources for the good of present and future generations. They establish plantations they will never see mature, fight fires to save homes they could not afford, and practice applied ecology few others can appreciate or comprehend.
All this gives foresters a sense of continuity and history."  (Murray Thompson - forester)
