The local TV station news was doing a story on lumber prices vs land owner prices.  FF member WDH was a good pick for them to interview.

We must break from this important story to bring you breaking news.  Our star is denying this story....claims no knowledge of said interview.

He did good with his choice of words.   Also showed him operating his tractor and feeding a planer.

WDH must be a bit like Chuck Norris, he scares his trees right past the Sawmill and kiln, and feeds them directly into the planer!

I'm always struck by how whenever a subject I am well informed on gets on the news, they definitely report on the subject in a way that you can tell they have no idea what they are talking about...glad they found Danny to bring some knowledge on the subject👍 I'm really not sure why the state forester is telling people to hold of on their harvest, it really does nothing to help the situation and when a pine stand down there is due for a thinning, it's time to get it done🤷🏽‍♂️

It's not so much that the trees have no value, it's that there isn't the processing infrastructure locally to go along with the production.
It's taken NZ about 100 years to get a fairly stable plantation pine system functioning. Where businesses will invest in sawmills / pulp and paper factories etc, because they are sure of supply for the next 30 years. Plus the infrastructure is all in place to export bulk logs. 
Not all smooth sailing as markets change over time. A downturn in the US building industry caused a couple of companies problems as they were heavily into supplying the US market with D. Fir. The pandemic closed Chinese ports for a while and disrupted the export scene, but NZ went into lock-down soon after that, and by the time we went back to work it was business as usual. Another local mill was forced to close as they were set up to produce newsprint, and demand for that has plummeted. Mill has been sold to a consortium of new owners who have the capital to convert to packing cardboard, which is in more demand. They can make that investment because there is a 30 year supply of trees growing in the province.  And people can replant because the mill is there and operating.

Good job Danny.  That's the way it goes.  I have been interviewed many times for the news and if they ask me 20 questions, one question will air on the news and usually not even my whole answer will air, but just the part that fits with the way they are promoting the story.  The last time I was interviewed for the news was about someone finding a bunch of drug needles on the ground and bringing them to the fire house, where I threw them in the dumpster.

If they spelled your name and credentials right - that's good journalism.
Anything else they get right is a bonus.   ;D

Yeah, you definitely get the impression that Danny the Tree Farmer just grows the trees up to harvestable size, runs them through the tree smoother, and turns them straight into a dining room table😂
