Category: Covid 19

In light of the Covid 19 outbreak we are taking a proactive approach to the running of FMM and wanted to inform you that we will be carrying on with business as best as we can manage.

For the foreseeable future we will still be carrying out site visits and testing products as we are able to adhere to Government guidelines for safe social distancing. Any trips to production facilities or the premises of suppliers and dealers will be postponed. We will however be able to offer alternative arrangements to keep potential customers informed of new products, safety techniques and services. 

Many of you who know or have met me understand how passionate I am about forestry; I am a second generation logger with over 40 years experience working in the industry and for the past four years have written about it in FMM and other UK publications.

With all exhibitions being cancelled globally we are in a prime position with almost 600,000 followers on our social media pages, and well over 30,000 people reading our magazine and free monthly e mag to get any new or existing products noticed by potential customers.

Due to the abnormal fluctuation of the currency markets we have had to suspend the $39.00 North American subscription for now but as soon as the markets stabilise this will be reinstated. This does not affect any current subscribers.

On a personal note it is vital to adhere to Government advice on Covid 19 and keep yourself, family and friends safe. In these difficult times we should all be pulling together to safeguard the future of our industry. If there is anything I can do to help though the magazine, emag or social media pages please do not hesitate to contact me.

Finally, my sincere thanks to you all for your continued support.
