Was just wondering if this could be considered a wood chipper? Reeeeeeeeeeeeeee

This is exactly what should be happening in California’s forests to create fire-breaks and this dense fuel.

A magnificent tool. Should also be used in our national parks to manage the forests. A few areas never touched. Most areas on a regular, posted cycle to minimize large fires, maximize wildlife that thrives with varied levels of tree growth. In the mid-west trees are a crop, just like corn but on a 20 -30 year cycle. With lots of water and CO2 (the essential nutrient) its hard to keep up with the tree growth. I have a pathetic little 3 1/2 acres with lots of trees and cannot keep up with clearing the dead trees and managing the growth of the the new ones. I cannot cut anymore out until I have a nice drizzly day to burn up the current brush pile. 6 ft high x 20 ft long.
The trees are growing a lot faster than that. That is only a little brush, one vine strangled pine and half of a split cottonwood that fell into my yard. There is still a dozen dead trees and never ending nuicencs brush to keep at.

I have a friend who owns and uses his old track TimberJack feller bunch machine with a Hot Saw head to log with. Also has two old track Processor machines for his small logging business. Sadly, I think Biden’s fuel prices, economic wreck and ruin are going to shut my friend down this logging season in Idaho. Finding help is so difficult, he is now a one man operation reliant on these machines for felling over chainsaw gangs.

that’s awesome.
Now get them to use in the national forests cutting down the standing dead and thinning the healthy stands so we don’t burn up.

But first it needs to be used on all the arsonist Pantifa actors who set fires.

In Calif. huge swaths of forest burnt leaving behind dead standing trees that did not completely burn. Time to cut them down and re forest our mountains.

Thin out the forests with these machines and we won’t have the raging fires that consume towns, and dependence on Canada for lumber. Dying trees produce methane 40 % more harmful than Co2

Doesn’t anyone care about all the homeless squirrels and birds??

The only thing more beautiful than a tree is what you can turn it into after its been harvested.

Beautiful for this size range and type of tree, but you ain’t taking down an 80 yo. silver maple or white oak using this machine.
