We cover all aspects of the forest industry from ground preparation, road building, planting, harvesting, extraction, haulage, saw-milling, health and safety, through to the end product. We visit harvesting sites, contractors, hauliers, and timber processing plants to keep abreast of all the latest news and technology.
