Forestry machines in action
« on: April 04, 2007, 09:48:41 AM »
Being as it's pretty dangerous to sneak up on big forestry machines to photo or video them, I was happy to find this video from the cab of a feller-buncher.

Hope others will add thier finds.

Neat video of the machine but the message is rather obvious. According to them, bears don't reproduce. ???

I didn't really understand that part ?

I'm pretty sure that you can't plant bears. ( If you could, would Jeff have a bear garden ??? )

The message was that timber harvesters are destructive killers of trees and cute furry things. Look at the note to the right of the screen, it is clearly an enviro whacko propaganda film.

Oh ! I thought since they showed the big plantation of seedlings that it was OK to log ?

I know that I'm very non-political and suspect that I'm also naive(sp.?) ;D I intend no message or commentary...I just thought it was a good video of the business end of the machine.

You cant plant bears but they do reproduce, so the whackos can save their breath

I'm thinking you've got it wrong Sawguy.
The message to the right is one of sarcasm.
Last I heard, enviro whacko's weren't for building sawmills.
Take a look at who submited the video. ;)
