Here we have Iain and Adrian talking us through the various stages of the mobile milling process. We see the team safely setting up and using their equipment to mill selected timbers. We also hear about the range of benefits of using this small-scale system, including that it enables the focus to be on individual trees as opposed to blanket clearance and so promotes a mixed age woodland, allowing for natural regeneration of trees.
