The Mercury: TRUCK STOP [31jul05]

TASMANIA'S logging contracting sector is near crisis point with contract quota reductions pushing timber workers to the brink.

One says he will be forced to move interstate after losing his timber contracts.

David Blackberry, who runs DKB Logging at Westbury, says he expects he will have to turn his back on the state's timber industry and the job he loves because he simply cannot afford to stay.

He said the sector was in crisis and predicted many contractors would struggle to stay afloat.

"It's stuffed here, mate. Really stuffed," he said.
