Report


"This survey, the report and associated literature review were prepared in response to a request from the Forests and Forest Industries Council of Tasmania regarding concern of its members regarding the increasing problem of end-splitting in sawlogs. A survey was carried out by CSIRO Forestry and Forest Products and the Hollybank Forest Industries Training Centre staff, which consisted of interviewing and inspecting twelve Tasmanian and four Victorian log yard operations and five harvesting operations. The Victorian operations were included to determine the scale of the problem outside of Tasmania and the harvesting operations to better understand the total log preparation and handling systems in place." -- Summary, p. 1.
