Derek’s trail machinery has totally changed my forest trails. I truly enjoy that people can easily walk, springs can now flow to the stream, and I can easily work on my pre-commercial thinning. Thank you Derek!!Pam Wells, Wells Forest
The event was attended by many who toured the property and watched a live demonstration of tree harvesting using the cut to length mechanical harvesting procedure.
