The Ranges are certainly better protected now than they were, and while some of the scars of “the thousand cuts” are slowly repairing, there will always be more work to do to ensure that this 30,000 hectare west coast forest that was devastated by logging 100 years ago, will in time recover its former wonder and beauty.
It will continue to be a wild and natural area where people live and recreate, but only, in the words of Professor E. M. Blaiklock, “if so we guard its grandeur”.
