Abstract: Chainsaw milling, the on-site conversion of logs into lumber using chainsaws, is supplying a large proportion of local timber markets with cheap lumber. while it offers socio- economic opportunities to local people, it is very often associated with corruption and illegalities. regulating and controlling the practice is a challenge due to the mobility of these chainsaw milling operations. with this issue of ETFRN News, Tropenbos international, together with Cifor, wishes to contribute to the discussion on how to address the domestic timber trade effectively and equitably at international and national levels.
