Forestbucker for optimal forest harvesting

Forestbucker™ Stem Scanner is a portable tree stem scanner and value optimiser.

The system will automatically scan and scale a delimbed tree and then calculate the optimal log-grade solution for the stem. Forestbucker is designed to operate at or near the tree harvesting site. Read more...

The system is designed to work with current logging equipment and machinery, from the small logging contractor to large sawmill operations.

Advantages of using the Forestbucker solution:

  • Get up to 20% more harvested forest value
  • In-specification log-making
  • True-shape scanning and tree length optimisation for maximum log value recovery
  • Easily switch to the log grades that are on order at the mills
  • Use proven and reliable sawmill scanning technology at the harvest location
  • Keep log production and quality high in all weather conditions
  • Improved safety through remote control technology
  • Low running costs

Profile-it 3D™ Software
Profile-it 3D is a Windows based software component of the Forestbucker system. It uses true-shape 3D scanning and tree-length optimisation to provide maximum log value recovery. The software remotely controls the scanner trolley to automatically scan stem properties like diameters, volume, length, sweep and wobble. Video cameras mounted on the trolley provide video and images of the stem to enable an operator to record additional stem defects.

Log Grade Manager
is a Microsoft Access application used for configuring log-grades, cut-plans and process-instructions. Log Grade Manager is used to centrally manage and control output production of log products and volumes.
