Small Scale Salvage - Forestry
A small-scale salvage licence is a specific type of forest licence to cut which allows the harvest of small amounts of timber that would otherwise not be harvested.
Small-scale salvage allowances depend on the type of timber, log and lumber markets, timber pricing, forest health and the number of small-scale salvage clients.
Small scale salvage is the recovery of individual trees or small patches of fallen timber considered uneconomic by the commercial forest industry. Salvage timber includes trees that are:
- Damaged by fire
- Marine salvage
- Considered to be logging operations residue
