WHAT WE DO

ic-2

CHIPPING

Chipping is underscoring removal. In this process a cutter cuts all the small brush and otherwise undesirable vegetation that is present in any tract of timber. These brush piles are skidded to a chipper and they are then fed thru and grinded up into small fuel chips, much like the everyday power company does after clearing right-of-ways. What's left is esthetically pleasing. This operation will not yield the high dollar, however the benefits of not doing as much site prep or the enjoyment received by a clean stand cannot be measured in dollars.

THINNING

Thinning is a process of taking out inferior trees in order to promote the growth of the saw timber trees. Palmetto Pulpwood & Timber has crews whose sole responsibility is thinning, thus we have earned the reputation as the premier first and second thinners. There are two stages of thinning. The first thinning occurs at about 12 - 15 years of age at which time every third row is removed. The second thinning usually occurs after 18 years old. This is usually done on an operator select basis. In which diseased, suppressed or otherwise inferior, non-saw timber producing trees are removed. This would leave the remaining trees in an optimum growing condition. The ultimate goal is to reach saw timber production, which is used to make boards.
