The advent of large-scale woodchipping operations in 1970-71 saw an increase in forest-based production. Whereas there had only been a couple of pulp mills chipping for wood production, there were now three major export chipping sites commencing operations - two on the Tamar River and one at Triabunna on the East Coast. These mills were equipped with a full range of wood handling, de-barking and chipping machinery, were situated at deepwater ports, utilising bulk-chip-handling conveyors and loading facilities for direct export to Japan.
