Mobile Sawmill

IMG_4086

This amazing contraption is a Wood Mizer mobile sawmill, designed to mill timber in situ. It is a very practical alternative to extracting large logs from awkward places. And it was a joy to watch it in action, in the hands of Will Wallace, founder of Woodlouse Industries, a small West Sussex supplier of local timber from the Weald. We cut down these three oaks in order to thin the canopy and improve woodland health in this coupe. But it is great to see local oak going to good use. And while we will never make a profit from Lag Wood, it has gone a little way towards subsidising our costs. And if anyone wants any magnificent oak floorboards, they’ll be seasoned and ready in a couple of years. See http://woodlouseindustries.co.uk/
