High Topping

Schwitzer Contracting has a high tree topping attachment that allows us to cut through trunks up to 700mm diameter, as high as 7m above ground .... all the while retaining full control of the tree, until it safely touches the ground. This is a very efficient method for shelter belt removal or management. The cut shelter belt trees are laid out neatly, ready for the next step - whether shipment off site, or de-limbing ready for firewood production.

Large Volume Chipping

Burning green vegetation creates a smoke nuisance for neighbours, and CO2 emission in the atmosphere. It is also a tremendous waste of valuable organic matter. Schwitzer Contracting has heavy duty chipping equipment that we can bring to your site, to convert waste timber material into useful wood chips. We can handle diameters up to 100 cm with this machinery, turning your waste material into wood chips that can be used in a wide variety of ways:

  • bedding material for calf sheds and stand off pads
  • on sloping banks to assist new vegetation growth for erosion control
  • as landscaping material
