New National Forest Park Open

A new park was opened inside the premises of the Bulolo Forestry College in Bulolo, and aptly named, the National Forest Board Park.

The new park was opened on the 4th of July this year, by Forest Minister, Douglas Tomuriesa.

 

The Minister unveiled the plaque and led with the tree-planting ceremony to mark the occasion.

 

The opening of the new park recently coincided with the first ever National Forest Board meeting in Bulolo at the Bulolo Forestry College.

 

When opening the Park, Forest Minister, Douglas Tomuriesa, urged the National Forest Authority, the custodian of PNG’s forest, to encourage sustainable Forest Management.

 

He said Papua New Guinea has the world’s third largest forest cover, and should take pride in that by conserving its forest resources.

 

He also mentioned that the National Executive Council has approved for a 50 per cent tariff to be imposed on imported plywood, to encourage downstream processing in the country.
