Continuity forestry

Preserve the forest feel with precision

The debate on alternatives to traditional forestry is hot right now. Instead of clearcutting an area when the stand reaches maturity, non-forestry methods aim to ensure that the forest land always has a tree layer. There are several methods that fall under the umbrella of continuity forestry, the common feature being that they require a higher degree of precision and selectivity to preserve the “forest feel”.

Malwa does not manufacture any pure felling harvesters – however, it is becoming more common, both in Sweden and abroad, for Malwa’s forwarders to be used successfully in combination with manual picking. Often, it is scattered trees with a particularly sought-after quality that must be felled. To access the wood with a larger machine, you would have to cut down trees just to prepare the way. Instead, they have chosen to go in with Malwa’s compact forwarder to collect the wood – without having to worry about surrounding trees.
