Just think of ALL the good lumber going to waste that many of us would love to have…What a loss…!

We have one of those that works in our area and when the campground owner decide to start the expansion, (another 2 acres for a total of 8.2), we’ll have the company come in and clean out our creekside area. We have oak trees and big cedars in that area that are so close together there is no possible way to cut them out or hitting an existing building. It’s the only possible way to reclaim that property which has gone unused for the last 50+ years.

It’s a tree planer! I’m sure you’re right about him not being a woodworker, but I have to admit to being impressed with the mechanics and power of the machine.

The design and operation are certainly intriguing, but I’d hate to think of that thing grinding up a nice cherry or walnut just for the sake of speed.

My 1st semester at L.A. Trade Tech. I saw that in reverse. As a jointer demo the instructor fed a 1/4×1/4 strip , 90 deg. to the cutters, straight down. That woke us up!

Greg, the title is a bit condescending; not every tree is salvageable for lumber.
I’m all for making the most of our trees, and leaving them alone when possible, but it’s not like every tree is taken down in this manner.

I’d love to use that on my neighbor’s leyland cypress trees. They’ve grown to about 35 feet tall and took out all my sunlight ha ha!

I didn’t see any trees worth salvaging. Most were small pine or quaking aspen.
