    Default white cypress

    So I have just been engaged to manage a property in N.S.W. (forest management) and was wanting to know what you guys would do with White cypress logs that are about 10-14 inch in diam?

    Cheers Rob

    they are growing to close together and the thinning would be good for the rest of the trees left behind. I just dont want to junk or chip the trees i cut out.

    Krunchie, find a sawmill structured for small log processing is your only answer, im sure one of them would take cypress. Good luck with it.Nev

    And asking Sigdi if he could recommend a Machine that might be able to deal with it.

    How many logs are there going to be? Maybe joining the green team will be worth your while

    Up this way, 10-14" is considered millable, albeit the bare minimum.

    Agree that Cypress needs to be thinned to reduce stand lockup. My place is in dire need of a major thinning but my free time is scarce (like everyone else's).

    cheers
