    Default NZ Log export update

    Prices have decreased in export destinations, which are pushing down prices at the wharf gate, though as expected this has been mitigated to some extent by the drop in the NZ dollar. Most prices this month have remained flat though export pruned prices have dropped considerably.
    NZ had a very large month for log exports during May, exporting 1.4 million tonnes, including over 1 million tonnes to China. This left NZ well on track to exceed the highest half year total ever for exports, despite including the typically slow January and February period. Exports this year so far are averaging just under 1.3 million tonnes per month.

    Default Blackwood

    This thread has had discussed blackwoods a bit. This one recently fell over on our block. 75cm DBH which is a reasonable size. I don't know how much usable timber will come out of it as it was mostly dead. If nothing else it's a good firewood.

    The live branches I cut off yesterday - they had fallen over and broken a fence - showed nice colour.

    So there's some encouraging signs about growing this fine timber species on our block.

    Default Caution

    Please be cautious of claims made by a particular promoter of Blackwood plantations. A recent post on their website claims an extremely high price paid for a plain Blackwood log: it was in fact figured and hence the purchase price. I pointed this out and yet no correction has been made. The same promoter then goes on to state that 300 cube of sawlog per ha can be grown (presumably on a 35 year rotation) and thus a single hectare of Blackwood plantation can generate $250,000 at harvest (minus harvest and transport cost which might be in the vicinity of $5,000).
    I get somewhat annoyed at ridiculous claims such as this. The prediction of 300 cube per ha is perhaps twice what may be achievable (despite having provided info on realistic growth rates to this promoter) while making claims of prices based on a single figured log as representative of what can be grown in plantation is in my view fraudulent. MIS forestry schemes have been a disaster and false claims as made by this particular promoter are no better.

    Chao anh Duc. I'm afraid the English translation is not very good, and it is not clear what is the question you are asking. If you are able to get some help with the translation, we will try to help you with your problem.

    We like to keep each thread to a single topic, so it would also be better if you begin a new thread for your question.
    Chao Anh,
    IW
