Atlantic Forestry January 2017

AFR: With respect to Mr. Jess’ question regarding a mounted chipping unit for roadside chipping (Letters to AFR Nov. 2016); this equipment does indeed exist and is used throughout Europe as well as a few units in North America. The company that produces them is Bruks. They have mobile chipping units that can attach to the back of a tractor-trailer cab, as well as units that can be mounted on a forwarder. There is actually one of the forwarder units in Nova Scotia, used by Barrett Lumber. Check out for more info.
