Fecon stands above the rest
On the proactive front, Fecon offers tracked forestry mulching tractors, hydraulic mulching heads, and excavator-mounted mulching attachments. All of this equipment can be used to remove underbrush that can quickly escalate a fire. Forestry mulchers and other forestry attachments can also be used to form firebreaks and defensible zones near inhabited areas.
During an active wildfire, forestry mulchers are a valuable addition to traditional bulldozers in creating fire lines and breaks. By mulching material directly into the ground, trees and mineral soils are not pushed outside of the line and can reduce post-fire costs to rehabilitate the area. Depending on the terrain, vegetation, environmental impact, and travel speed requirements, the flexibility of using forestry mulching equipment is extremely helpful.
In the clean-up stages and for silviculture, Fecon forestry equipment can help provide a top layer of mulch to prevent erosion and can be used to reduce and blend slash into mineral soils to improve decomposition and provide enhanced soil conditions for establishing seedlings.
“We work in harsh conditions and equipment reliability is a major concern for us. The only maintenance we have to do with Fecon heads is grease them. We have never had anything go wrong with a Fecon head which is really important when you are working in remote regions of the forest.”
