Harvesting Brainstorm

  • Byron Farm Retreat 137 Taylors Road Eureka, NSW, 2480 Australia (map)

Farm foresters, felling contractors and anyone with practical knowledge and skills are invited to brainstorming event

We are about to begin harvesting fast-growing Quandong and Queensland maple from mixed species Cabinet timber woodlots in the Northern Rivers region.

We need your experience and skills to help guide the process

We aim to achieve the selective felling of trees within close planted woodlots, with the least possible damage to the remaining stand. Farm foresters, felling contractors and anyone with practical knowledge and skills are invited to an event at Joe Harvey-Jones’s property in Eureka 

The day will begin at 12.00 midday, with a walk through the first stand to be thinned, followed by inspection of the site preparation already in hand (a pad cut for the onsite low-cost Solar Kiln being installed by Southern Cross university, and a site for the portable sawmill.

A barbeque lunch will be provided at the house where we a brainstorm will be guided by a facilitator, to arrive at best practice safe methods for falling the timber and processing it through the bandsaw mill and into the kiln.

Numbers are limited to 25, so please register your details.

In the comments box, mention your interest in the brainstorm, and please list any relevant experience and qualifications.
