Loading Timber from Roadside Forests

Guidance on Loading Timber from Roadside Forests 2016 was launched at the Timber Transport Conference on 10th March 2016.

Loading Timber from Roadside Forests 2016 sets out good practice relating to the use of public roads and adjacent verges for forest harvesting operations - specifically the stacking of round timber and the loading of timber haulage vehicles.  Under normal circumstances the public road should not be used for forestry harvesting operations.  Where this is necessary it must be done with the formal permission of the relevant authority while managing operator and public safety.
