This first edition of June takes a look the world’s largest grapple skidder and an accumulation kit that enables a harvesting head to also accumulate trees. We examine why the use of grease is so important (with more to follow in future issues!). New Zealand is about to embark on some exciting research on steep slope harvesting.
On the environmental side, we see how much carbon is in a tree compared to everyday carbon emitted through energy use, and we look at a new initiative to make people and organisations aware of how their products and supply chains could possibly be causing permanent indigenous forest deforestation.
