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. 

Spending most of my life in forestry has afforded me the opportunity to build up a network of highly experienced operators that I am able to call upon for trialing forestry equipment and accessories. Having this unique network of operators gives us the advantage of carrying out honest and unbiased trials in optimum conditions.
