[Published Ghanaian Chronicle - Sep 24 2014]


Jonathan Gerrelli, head Agister and a commoner, said: "Autumn is an especially important time of year as it gets dark earlier in the evening and some drivers may not realise that the number of accidents involving animals on rural roads will increase because of that."
Welcoming the Commissioners and the National Committee to Fort William, Gavin Adkins of BSW Timber, said: "Our investment in Fort William and across the Group demonstrates a genuine commitment to expand and maximise efficiencies on site by introducing the latest in production technology, coupled with our desire to improve our use of sustainable and renewable energy."
Mark Lebus of LC Energy said: "The Wood Fuel Conference has been growing rapidly over the past five years and reflects the significant interest and its importance as a flagship nationwide event for the wood and wood fuel industries. The principal reason for our involvement from the start has been to make best use of the opportunity to build awareness of all aspects of the wood fuel sector for both users and suppliers.”"
"These are important economic indicators for the Scottish Government's Forestry Strategy and help to inform debate around forestry policy. The last assessment was carried out six years ago and much in the world of forestry has changed since then."
