Abstract

Four return to log and tree sawing studies of 50 trees each were planned for this project and two were completed. The trees were selected from sites identified by interrogating the Forestry Plantations Queensland inventory data-base as being representative of the remaining slash pine mature clearfall harvest resource. Additionally a reference document reviewing wood quality research undertaken on slash pine in Queensland and northern NSW was prepared.
The first two planned sawing studies were undertaken by processing industry partners Weyerhaeuser Australia and Hyne and Son after which the project’s steering committee reviewed the results. The steering committee decided that these initial two return to log and tree sawing studies did not provide a robust enough prediction model to justify further investment in return to log sawing studies. Consequently the project steering committee recommended truncating the project activities and not proceeding with the planned additional sawing studies.
