Yalmy Sidecut** (Site: 44)

Site of Regional Significance
Warm Temperate Rainforest

Was a virtual wilderness as of 1994.

Site is in good condition but the headwater of a major Yalmy tributary has been logged out. Rainforest is largely protected by minimum code prescriptions. A big informal Special Protection Zone was removed during the 1997 East Gippsland Regional Forest Agreement.

GoogleEarth images

The Rainforest EVC (Ecological Vegetation Class) and RSOS boundaries have been overlayed onto Google Earth imagery to produce images that give a three dimensional perspective of the landscape where rainforest communities exist in East Gippsland. (Note: Rainforest EVC colour code is not consistent for all images.)
