About Forest Machine Magazine

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.

Having this unique network of operators gives us the advantage of carrying out honest and unbiased trials in optimum conditions.
