A campaigner for sustainable logging in the Wombat Forest is trying to rally like-minded people to lobby the State Government.

Increasingly tough restrictions being placed on logging activity in the forest have forced some sawmills to close.

But Loris Duclos says a State Government adviser told her the Government had not made a final decision on the forest's future.

"He reassured me that the Government did not have a lock-up agenda for the Wombat, so those who support a small native forest industry in this area need to be ringing the minister and making sure that a strong voice from this side of the debate is heard, because they certainly hear a lot from the other," she said.
