Tractors and Trees ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here we see Stuart Brooking, Devon area manager for http://www.woodlands.co.uk, working with Jim and Simon to manage some windblown spruce trees that are blocking a woodland track. This work is carried out for safety reasons, to renew access through the woodland and to allow use of the timber as firewood before the trees start to rot. We learn about the various stages involved in the extraction process, the different equipment used and the safety precautions necessary when working with the 27hp tractor and 3.5 tonne winch - which can get in between the trees. The larger tractor then takes over to pull the logs to a central point, ready to clear from the woodland. http://www.haldontreeservices.co.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

I have a Massey Ferguson 1045, 35hp. Looks like your skidder winch would be the correct size, what model and brand is it? Thanks, Dave.

Downed dead woody material left in the woods is very important, nature doesn't like a "tidy" forest. Yes you have to clean up the track and salvaging the blow downs for use makes good sense, but leaving the tops and an occasional tree to rot in the woods is key to a healthy ecosystem.

Sadly I see forestry commission woods devastated by monster machines carving up bluebell woods thinning out trees leaving massive grooves in the earth with debris left all over the area, woods ruined with branches dumped all over the place, I also see private woods for pheasant shoots carved up with little care for the beauty they are destroying so its nice to see some care being done.
