Logging refers to the process of cutting down trees for commercial use. It involves the extraction of timber from forests and the transportation of the logs to sawmills or other processing facilities.
A sawmill is a facility where logs are processed into lumber or other wood products. This is typically done by sawing the logs into various shapes and sizes using specialized machinery. Sawmills can produce a wide range of products, including lumber, plywood, and veneer.
Logging and sawmill operations are essential components of the forestry industry, providing valuable resources for construction, manufacturing, and other industries. However, they can also have significant environmental impacts if not managed carefully. Sustainable forestry practices are critical to ensure the long-term health of forests and the ecosystems they support.
