Sam the Koala, one of the iconic images of hope from the Victorian bushfires, could live on in chocolate.

Former army major, Marry-Ann Martinek, has applied to use the words 'Sam the Koala' on chocolates along with the image of firefighter David Tree giving the marsupial a drink from his water bottle.

However Mr Tree isn't having a bar of it and has slammed the move.

Sam the Koala died last week of urogenital chlamydiosis.
