Forestry and timber

Wood and woodland management doesn't just stop with planting and felling trees, there are all sorts of different skills and trades involved; cutting and stacking, splitting, sawing into planks, transporting. These cards cover a few of those side industries.

Two business cards showing a forest harvester cutting and stripping trees. These amazing machines can do the job of several men as it grips a tree while felling it, then turns it sideways running the trunk through it's jaws to strip off the branches, cuts the trunk into measured lengths, and then stacks it for collection. This one is the well-known Finnish Ponsse brand, other makes are John Deere's Timberjack and Komatsu's Valmet
