Near Miss - Timber Stack Collapses

Scottish Woodlands - Toolbox Talk

A roadside stack of 4.9m logs destabilised and collapsed out onto the forest road. No one was in the vicinity at the time of the collapse and no one was injured.

Water flowing through the peat under the timber stack caused the preformed stacking bench to subside, destabilising the timber stack.

Scottish Woodlands have also produced a Guidance Note on Planning the Safe Stacking of Timber.
