Welcome to the latest issues of HarvestTECH.News.
The response to those wanting to present at the region’s major log transport and wood harvesting event, HarvestTECH 2021 which will run in Rotorua, New Zealand on 13-14 April 2021, has been overwhelming. Thanks for to all of you that have been in touch with us.
The programme right now is currently being designed with those that have got back to us, major equipment and technology suppliers to wood transport and harvesting operations, researchers and key contractors across New Zealand and Australia. Like the 2019 event that sold out months in advance, this gathering likewise is shaping up already to be a major drawcard to contractors and forestry companies across the region next year.
Exhibitors are already booking the few spots still available at the Rotorua venue. To add to the buzz next year, the regions eagerly awaited Forest Safety & Technology 2021 event (this year it had to be run as an on-line series because of the lock-down) will also be running alongside HarvestTECH 2021 at the same venue. Further details will follow.
Right, a couple of the highlights from this month’s issue. Stories include; recent releases from major equipment suppliers, a couple of articles highlighting the importance of work safety on site, the release of a series of videos profiling the silvicultural industry and a case study of one company in NZ (who’ll be presenting next year at HarvestTECH 2021) on how they’ve worked with an East Coast forestry company installing relocatable bridges for their harvesting operations.
Remember to send through any contributions, stories or links that we can pass onto the wider wood harvesting and log transport community.
