Single Tree Felling
For single or simple tree projects, we usually deploys more of the traditional hand felling techniques. We use a saw or chainsaw, depending on the size of the tree. After the felling of such a tree follows manual limbing, or delimbing as some would call it, to clear the branches and keep your compound/forest tidy. We also do the bucking of the logs manually. Don’t worry, our fellers are highly trained experts on all the bucking specifications
For more complex trees or group of tees, we deploy one of our range of sophisticated machinery such as the Feller Buncher. The Muncher easily goes through a forest cutting down designated trees, automatically limbing and bucking to the required log sizes. Additionally, some of them can also move the cut pieces to their stockpile sites for easy storage or commercial disposal. Contact us and we will advise you on the necessary machinery for your felling.
