Timber cutting process is based on using of high-tech assortment technology. This technology allows to increase the productivity of mechanized lumbering, in accordance with modern environmental requirements.
Technology is based on agregate complex consisting of Harvester and Forwarder joint work. The equipment of world leaders of the industry «Komatsu Forest» and «Ponsse» allows to make a felling, shortening, haulage and piling of wood in difficult landscape conditions.
The technological scheme allows to keep more than 70% of staddle and more than 90% of mantle soil.
Moreover felling and milling machines «John-Deere» are used in the process of timber cutting. These machines cut down wood by long shoot for cuttings. Such mechanism helps to provide safety of staddle and conditions for subsequent reforestation.
