'...a group of local landowners who are interested in the sustainable management of their timber-covered blocks in the future, have arranged for Steve White, the proud owner of a portable Lucas mill, to come down to the riverside just south of the Living Boat Trust at 10 am on Sunday Morning, 29th November, and demonstrate the use of his machine, which is an example of  the new forest technology that will contribute to the sustainable management of our local forests in the future. This is an opportunity to learn how these remarkable machines work, and how they can be used for small scale private forest management. It will also help to have enough people there, at 10 am on 29th, the day after the Swiftsure regatta, to help with timber storage for the boats that will be built in the Franklin of the future....'
