Harvesting focus for AusTimber 2012

Friday 27 Jan 2012

AUSTimber 2012 will be held at Mount Gambier, South Australia, on 29th – 30th March. The Expo is situated on a cleared area surrounded by softwood and hardwood plantations, which will be used for harvesting demonstration. All the active forest sites on the plan are sold. We still, however, have the ability to add more within the overall area of AUSTimber if required.

This, in effect, means that there will be seven harvesting and extraction operations within the pine plantation, five cut-to-length bluegum operations, four tree-length harvesting operations and four in-field chipping operations processing product that will be hauled off the site during the event. There are still a few sites remaining in the static display area both in the open air and forest areas and organisers are encouraging potential exhibitors to be quick to secure the remaining few sites.

Once again, AUSTimber 2012 is showcasing careers in the Forestry Industry, following the success of AUSTimber 2008. At the forthcoming event, in conjunction with the Logging Investigation and Training Association and Tabeel Trading, opportunities will be presented for interested people to experience operating harvesting equipment, both in a simulated and real environment. Exhibitor Enquiries and Registrations are very strong currently and further information can be found at www.austimber2012.com.au, or by contacting the Administration Manager, Libby Ditcham, on libby@austimber2012.com.au
