Low impact forestry services in Devon and the South West

Recommended Posts

Had a super busy day yesterday loading a ridiculous number of flats. 

 

This lorry, number 16, was the last of the day. 450t loaded :D

Lovely straight logs :) k

Wish I had more jobs like this. We'll have cleared nearly 3000t in 4 weeks. All hand felled (I like low stumps), a log or two taken off and processed by harvester. 

 

I think the sweet spot is about 10 lorries a day as it gives me enough time to nip down the hill to grab a load, which goes straight onto the lorry from the forwarder. Two forwarder loads is one lorry load :D

It's a rare stand. Good quality timber on good ground. I expect I'll put over 1000t onto the lorries next Tuesday-Friday :D

U've not done all that with ur wee stroke harvester have u?

Or do u have a mid size 1 now?

The logs don't look that big that a full size harvester couldn't fell and process them. Infact look the sort most operators dream off, meaty and straight but not too big.

Not many sites now u'd fell that amount by hand nowadays, bet the cutters enjoyed it for a change. Proper old school job

 

Is it quite a dry site? Was going to ask how u get on forwarding without the  deeper brash matt.
