The Greens new forest policy would end native logging in Tasmania's forests, and Forestry Tasmania would be repurposed to make the state a world leader in biodiversity protection and carbon storage.
Greens leader Cassy O'Connor said it was time to listen to the science, and apply the principles of sustainability, inter-generational equity, and the precautionary principle to Tasmania's forests.
She said their policy was an evidence based and costed plan to end native forest logging.
"Under our plan, the 356,000 hectares of high conservation value forest set aside under the Tasmanian Forest Agreement will go in to reserves, as they were intended to be. This will include areas of forested lands to be owned and managed by Aboriginal Tasmanians," she said.
"We will reclassify the Permanent Timber Production Zone (PTPZ) forests as Carbon Capture and Conservation reserves. And we'll work to monetise the carbon stored in these forests to provide an income, instead of a loss, to the State Budget."
She said the plan delivers a just transition for forestry workers to help better manage forests to become carbon bankers and bushfire mitigation specialists.
"We will rename and repurpose Forestry Tasmania into a new government agency, Forests Tasmania, that becomes a force for restoration rather than destruction."
She said the the Greens would ban high intensity logging burns to improve community safety and benefit public health.
"We'll also make sure fuel reduction burns are underpinned by science rather than arbitrary, politicised targets."
