Planters for Large Establishments
Reduce planting costs, expand establishments and extend your planting season
The ASP Planter is Geared Toward Maximal Efficiency for Large Establishments and Reforesting Operations
Our heavy duty ASP tree seedling planting machine is designed for establishment and reforestation of pine, eucalyptus, and other subtropical seedlings in a pot. The ASP planter enables afforestation projects using natural seedlings for mixed stand forest creation and maximal carbon capture.
With a capacity of up to 720 seedlings per loading the ASP-range enables efficient operations. The ASP employs sub-soiling cultivation with a durable pitting unit. We recommend operating on semi-arid and arid flat terrains.
The ASP tree planting machine helps you reduce planting costs significantly and achieve better results, faster while deploying less resources. Complete all stages of the reforestation process at once; pitting, planting, watering, fertilizing and more, while avoiding expensive site preparation operations like mulching and destumping.
Operate at the highest capacity with the aid of rapid loading cassettes and a patented planting mechanism.
Why You Should Consider Mechanized Silviculture
Reforestation is expensive and slow due to multiple steps
With mechanized planting you can combine many different stages, making the reforesting process fast and more economical overall. Combining the different stages will accelerate forest growth, while improving the quality of work. One upshoot of combining stages is the reduced need for weed control, since weeds do not have time to take root between planting stages. And any stages you can leave from your costings will obviously impact your profits positively!
Availability, organization, cost and safety of skilled personnel
Not everyone wants to do tough silvicultural work in remote locations. By mechanizing your operations, you will be upskilling people with transferrable skills. In addition, a planter will obviously reduce the need for low-skilled manual labor. With the same number of people, you get significantly more results. More results, which are achieved more cost efficiently and with a significant reduction of safety risk.
A short planting season reduces effective planting time
The reduction of effective planting time will reduce the yield of your forests. With mechanical planting your can work on different process stages simultaneously speeding up your silvicultural operation. Moreover, irrigation increases planting time at both ends of the planting season, and makes it easier to plant in challenging conditions. With our guidance systems the sun will never set on your operations allowing your operations to effectively work around the clock.
Risutec ASP-720/360 is the most efficient planting head for large plantations of eucalyptus, pine and other subtropical seedlings with a pot.
TASK is a guidance system for forestry operators that helps standardize the planting process. It's also invaluable for management in planning and control.
Whether you're planting to save the planet or planting for industrial use the Risutec ASP-150 should be your first choice.
