FOREST MACHINE MAGAZINE
In light of the Coronavirus outbreak we are taking a proactive approach to the running of FMM and wanted to inform you that we will be carrying on with business as best as we can manage.
For the foreseeable future we will still be carrying out site visits and testing products as we are able to adhere to Government guidelines for safe social distancing. Any trips to production facilities or the premises of suppliers and dealers will be postponed. We will however be able to offer alternative arrangements to keep potential customers informed of new products, safety techniques and services.
Many of you who know or have met me understand how passionate I am about forestry; I am a second generation logger with over 40 years experience working in the industry and for the past four years have written about it in FMM and other UK publications.
With all exhibitions being cancelled globally we are in a prime position with almost 600,000 followers on our social media pages, and well over 30,000 people reading our magazine and free monthly e mag to get any new or existing products noticed by potential customers.
At the onset of the outbreak I was devastated for the people in the highest risk category. I couldn’t believe it when I found out it actually applied to me. I am not sure when this happened as in my mind I am still this invincible 24 year old fit woodcutter and not this over 60 year old guy with underlying health issues.
Due to the abnormal fluctuation of the currency markets we have had to suspend the $39.00 North American subscription for now but as soon as the markets stabilise this will be reinstated. This does not affect any current subscribers.
On a personal note it is vital to adhere to Government advice and keep yourself, family and friends safe. In these difficult times we should all be pulling together to safeguard the future of our industry. If there is anything I can do to help though the magazine, emag or social media pages please do not hesitate to contact me.
Finally, my sincere thanks to you all for your continued support.
