Feller bunchers are Exᴛʀᴇᴍᴇʟʏ effective felling tools. They can be effective in both clear-cuts and thinning. Compared to ᴍᴀɴual felling, their ability to control tree removal can minimize residual stand ᴅᴀᴍᴀɢᴇ. The entire tree is typically extracted to the landing since the feller buncher is incapable of processing. A separate climbing and topping operation must be done before extraction if the slash is to be left in the forest.
When the removal of biomass is desired and the range of the bunching head is appropriate, feller bunchers are a good choice. The size of the feller-buncher that can be used depends on the type of treatment, such as thinning or clearcutting. A key factor to take into account is the capacity to move around inside the stand without harming the residue. If the trees being felled are too large for a small machine but the spacing is too narrow for a large machine, then the ᴍᴇᴛʜod or the machinery must be changed.
Feller bunchers are excellent at felling trees and positioning them for easy extraction. They cannot process, so it must be done ᴍᴀɴually or with additional machinery. Feller bunchers are a good partner for grapple skidders, clam bunk skidders, and shovel operations due to their capacity to construct and position bunches. A feller buncher, a grapple skidder, and some sort of processor at the landing make up the most typical system.
The research studies and reports on harvest systems that use feller bunchers are summarized in the list below. These reports can be used to gain insight into the productivity, effects, and feller buncher uses of various systems, as well as some of their limitations. Remember that these reports describe specific systems and stand treatments as you read them. Applying the knowledge gained from these reports to treatments and systems not covered by the studies may have unwanted or unexpected results.
This is not a comprehensive list of feller buncher research. The United States Forest Service Research webpage has more details. Reports for studies conducted by scientists in the forest service’s research and development division and their associates are available on this website.
