Single-row, Tractor-Mounted Tree Lifter for Hardwoods

Proper handling of experimental seedlings becomes quite a problem when large-scale tree breeding and testing programs are instituted. Often large numbers of experimental lineout stock must be lifted for field planting. Experimentally it is desirable to have the trees handled carefully, uniformly, and as expediently as possible. The Institute of Paper Chemistry's forest genetics program requires the handling of large numbers of aspen seedlings. To reduce the problem of handling the experimental trees a single-row tree lifter was designed and built (figs. 1 and 2). The lifter is attached by a three point hitch that fits the hydraulic system of either the Ford or Ferguson tractor.
