Home publication [Archive] Water storage of timber: experience in Britain

From time to time a calamity such as forest fire or violent storm requires that timber is salvaged quickly. Where such timber is plantation grown the investment loss that major destruction brings is catastrophic unless the most valuable timber can be saved and then marketed in an orderly way. This Bulletin reports on a successful British experience in which water storage employing overhead water sprinklers was used to prevent deterioration of high quality pine logs. This publication is available in hardcopy.
