Mechanized cleaning of seedling stands
The Naarva uprooter is a revolutionary invention for mechanical cleaning of pine and spruce seedling stands. Naarva uprooter presses unwanted saplings between rubbers with its jaws and roots them out of the ground.
Uprooting beats manual cleaning with clearing saw in every way. Seedling stand has to be treated only once, and unwanted seedlings dry out. Uprooted vegetation does not resprout. Since there is no competition of unwanted saplings in the planting site, the spruce and pine seedlings have more nutrients and grow much faster in length and diameter.
In good conditions the working rate for Naarva P25 is 4 hours per hectare. Average 6,2 h/ hectare. Costs of cleaning can be halved with Naarva uprooter.
