How to Fix Your Timber Processing Facility

A report released by the Timber Processing Association (TPA) warns that the industry has been in a state of denial about the problems with its facilities, with the industry claiming that it is “totally compliant” with federal requirements.

According to the report, a “significant” number of facilities are currently operating in a “lack of compliance.”

The report states that some facilities have been operating for more than a decade, but only a small number of them have been inspected in recent years.

“The timber industry has failed to maintain and protect its timber-processing facilities from timber-removal problems,” the TPA report reads.

“In the last 10 years, only about 50 percent of facilities inspected were compliant with the federal requirements to minimize timber-cutting, harvest, and shipping losses.”

“Some of the worst offenders include companies operating in the Pacific Northwest and the Northern Interior,” the report reads, referring to Oregon, Washington, and Montana.

“While most of the states inspected were very positive about their timber-management operations, a number of states and the federal government had the audacity to conduct inspection in a manner that was highly suspect and could potentially have a negative impact on the health of the timber industry.”

The TPA says it is investigating the safety of some of the facilities it surveyed, but it has found many of them to be “poorly constructed and inadequately managed,” and the facilities are in “imminent danger.”

The company also claims that it has been “lacking in timely and accurate information” on the safety and quality of the operations of its facilities.

The TIA, which represents timber processing facilities, has a long history of fighting against the federal Timber Protection Act, which has required the logging industry to report timber losses and harvest losses to the U.S. Forest Service.

The Forest Service has previously sued TPA and its members, claiming that the company and its employees are being improperly targeted because they are considered to be contractors, rather than independent contractors.

TPA claims that the TIA’s “anti-corporate agenda” and “misguided approach to industry oversight” are behind the TAA’s actions.

“TAA has been fighting the federal timber protection act since the 1970s, and its anti-corporatist agenda has been at the heart of its activities for years,” the group said in a statement.

“We are hopeful that this report will put a stop to the deceptive tactics that have been employed to weaken the TGA, its members and their customers.”
