A new addition to the 2020 Timber Festival is an exciting Timber Sports event that starts at 9:00 AM on Saturday 14th March and runs throughout the day.

This showpiece consists of teams of local foresters showing their skills and competing against each other in seven different disciplines.

These include offloading and loading of timber trucks, axe felling of vertical logs and axe parting of horizontal logs.  There will also be speed chainsaw competitions where competitors cut thin wafers off a log whilst chasing the clock.

This event will consist of two knockout rounds followed by the finals fought out between three teams.

An outstanding feature of the afternoon’s entertainment will be a world record attempt for simultaneous chainsaw operation beginning at 2:00 PM.
