Forester / forest tool


For the stability of the forest, the forest should be thinned at the right time. But here is the manually work with a motor saw too less efficient, neither to use a harvester makes sense, because there would be too many costs and many crop damages.

Here finds the Forester his working field. He quickly can be used punctually, and doesnŽt leave crop damages behind.

The Forester checks the right trees and the chop direction in case of chip-marks. Cut off the branches vertically, fell the tree top and take the bole down under control.

So it also reduces the danger for the woodworkers.
