Valuing both Present and Future needs.
Respected for our hardworking, productive silviculture teams who consistently meet specifications. We specialize in eucalypt, sandalwood, and pine plantings. Task-specific equipment supports our silviculture teams working in remote areas.
Through innovation and operator expertise, we have extracted over a million trees from plantation farms in extensive thinning operations throughout the Great Southern and South Eastern and Wheatbelt districts of WA.
Our forestry services include:
- Site preparation works
- Mechanical thinning
- Coppice removal
- Edge and limb pruning
- Stump removal
- Tree planting
- Minor civils
Our effective stump removal and general tree farm clean-up techniques for harvested plantations are sensitive to fragile soil structures and ensure :
- No recurring problems with coppice
- Stumps are extracted whole and not ground down in-situ as in other methods
- Stump residues can be relocated to other areas of the farm for nutrient recycling or disposal
All our blue gum and stump removal operations are undertaken by our respected, highly trained, and skilled personnel.
“IF YOU CAN’T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES …. WE’D LOVE TO TALK TO YOU”
Tree Farm Rehabilitation – A Bit of History…
Land clearing techniques have not improved much over the last 50 years. Traditionally, scrub and trees were "chained" and pushed into burning heaps by dozers. The land is then cleaned up using scrub rakes. Whilst this is fast and furious - clearing large tracts at a time - topsoil losses and disturbances have a profound effect on the cleared soil's "health".
In the following photos, taken at a trial site, the difference in methodology is starkly evident. In the top right image, trees to the right of the image were chained using dozers, whilst centre front and left are windrows of extracted trees done by Mara Crann. The sites were then left untreated. In the bottom images, taken at the same location seven months later - the lush pasture regrowth on the extracted site speaks for itself. NOTE: The windrows of extracted trees were left insitu at the client's request.
