New Zealand Tree Grower;May2008, Vol. 29 Issue 2, p31
The author talks about how they promoted poplar as a future timber resource in Northland, New Zealand. The move was made in order to keep the nursery viable when government subsidies were removed in the 1980s, and the Northland Regional Council pulled out of pole planting. The author purchased a Woodmiser bandsaw mill, and later a dehumidifier kiln and four-sider planer in order to process poplar logs. He says that the wood from the butt logs made excellent timber for virtually any purpose. He recommends a procedure for milling.
