Harvest Management of Forest Blocks
Davies Logging harvests forest blocks throughout the Canterbury region and has done so for the last 20 years.
We manage all aspects of the harvest, including developing and implementing the harvest plan, marketing and selling all log grades to both domestic and export markets, establishing the infrastructure, organising trucking, logging of the trees and completing the administrative side of the harvest,
Our logging crew is a highly experienced, ground based crew that works all year round. We specialise in mechanical harvesting of trees on both flat land and steep hill country blocks. Our operation uses modern well maintained machines, including a a John Deere 959MH with a Woodsman Pro 1350C Felling Head, a Tigercat 875 Harvester with a Woodsman Pro 750 Processor, a Tigercat 625 skidder, a Sumitomo TLFS300 excavator and a Sumitomo 300-6 with a Falcon winch assist.
Our long term relationships throughout the industry and having modern machines with experienced operators enables Davies Logging to efficiently fell, process and load logs in order to maximise the value of the logs to the forest owner. We operate on a managed harvest sale and have an open book policy as we believe in transparency. Therefore forest owners know exactly where all grades are sold and the values achieved. Davies Logging prides itself in having a safe, tidy and professional working environment and in working collaboratively with forest owners and all stakeholders.
