Timber Salvage

Windblown, sick, dead and dying trees as well as trees fallen for way of development roads, etc...are eagerly collected, processed and put into stock for use in furniture and turning.

Stan has over 35 years of experience with all aspects of timber harvesting, falling, snigging, transporting, processing, value adding, product design and marketing.

We use some interesting machinery in our salvage -- the heart of the operation is a 58 year old ex W.W.II Ford Army Blitz 4wd fitted with 1200x20 floatation tires, a crane and a 200 hp winch. Logs of up to approximately 15 tons can be winched and logs up to 5 tons can be carried out of rugged terrain or paddocks.
