Low impact forestry services in Devon and the South West

Recommended Posts

Finally finished extracting the site near Honiton. Between 815 and 845t extracted. I'll know exactly once the timber is lifted.

The mad thing is that that isn't even half of it. It gets so tough to stack neatly once you're 4m up as well.

 

Thanks for taking the photos :D

Not certified no. Very expensive process for a small manufacturer. You'd have to work spectacularly hard to roll the cab section as the bunk can roll fully without pulling the cab over. The centre of gravity is very low on the cab.

Really liking the low impact, high quality approach you're taking. Certainly beats this.. two hundred tonnes extracted from mixed sitka, Norway and larch stand down the lane from my place, first thin, loads of damage to surrounding trees and ground.

Have you ever taken the time to work out your production rate as regards litres of fuel per tonne roadside? Interested to see how it may compare to larger scale enterprises..

Typically just over a litre of red diesel per tonne on average, including winching when required. 

 

Not a good finish on the site in the photo. Wrong machines for the ground conditions
