    High Production Harvesting at Ngaruru

    Forest harvesting is now highly mechanized. Having all the harvesting crew operating a machine improves productivity and safety compared to the old manual felling and manual log making.

    The visit to the skid site on Ngaruru was an opportunity to discuss the efficient use of machines for ground based logging. Ngaruru is one of the first blocks to be harvested on the south bank of the Wairau catchment.

    John Horton of Nelson Forests Ltd explains how each machine is used to achieve high productivity.
