Even if you look at the background hills in the photo in real life you will see that the undergrowth has come back stronger than it ever was and in another 10-15 years when the saplings have grown you will no longer be able to see the tall dead trees. When they eventually rot and fall they will create even more biodiversity.
The only real destruction is the massive areas that were clear felled by the state government in an attempt to get a financial windfall from the timber within the two years from the date of the fires and before the timber became useless for resale.
I guess the "Forever" part of "forests are destroyed forever" can be loosely interpreted as "in our lifetimes" or at the very least a generation or so. Most people don't really look too much further ahead than that sort of time frame.

Governments hey! Don't you just love them?

Vman, Yep Stone, what a trip man
If you mean the "where am I" game, I will stop labelling the pictures

V Chops, There may be some pics of me smoking tyres hiding somewhere, but that's all I occasionally smoke

Here are a few more random locations, If you ever see a big sign saying the road is "unsuitable for caravans" That usually means VERY suitable for VStroms
