Executive summary

This report provides the results from a survey of New Zealand’s small-scale sawmillers with the 75 survey responses received demonstrating significant interest and support. Given this feedback, a workshop is proposed for all involved to be held in the next few months with the aim of enabling a ‘Stop/Go point’ to be reached –, where ‘Go’ would signal that there is sufficient support and motivation from those working in the small-scale sawmilling sector to begin the process of establishing an industry association.

Fascinating that Paul Millen doesn't realise that there already is an industry Association - Farm Forestry Timbers Society - given he was on the committee before resigning in a huff because FFT wouldn't do what he wanted.
