|PDF (Guidelines for Harvesting Coconut Palms in South Pacific Island Countries)|
Any policies developed to provide specific guidelines for the harvesting of senile palms should to take into account the controls required to:
• Harvest and replace senile coconut palms to maintain a sustainable coconut resource base for forecasted future demand.
• Implement safe harvesting practices.
• Address environmental considerations.
A rotary peeled coconut veneer product industry is being investigated as an option for the use of logs that will be extracted when senile palms are harvested. If this option proves attractive, strategic operations will need to be considered to address an increasing demand for peeler-logs. Guidelines for harvest log selections, felling, log handling and site rehabilitation are identified and proposed in this document.
