34,000 woodchip trucks for 2006

The Japanese export woodchip mill at Eden in NSW held a celebration for all past and present staff and families in early December to mark the first time in the mill’s 36-year history that it has produced one million tonnes of woodchips for export in one year.

Most of this was thanks to three main factors: the rampant and unchecked ‘salvage logging’ that was still going on in the 2003 fire affected areas, the generous concessions offered to the company to transport the wood, and officials turning a blind eye to good sawlogs going off to the chipmill.
