GFC’s mechanical fuel treatment offers safe and effective control of understory vegetation that can make wildfire mitigation and control a struggle. These powerful tools churn through places unsuited for traditional methods such as prescribed burning and chemical treatment. Mechanical fuel treatment is ideal for areas in the wildland-urban interface, land near gas lines, power lines, rights of way and other
Mechanical fuel treatment machines are specifically equipped to safely and effectively manage the thick understory that grows in Georgia’s forests:
• 88” wide front mount/triple rotary deck, rear discharge mechanical underbrush clearing machine;
• Mulches all underbrush and trees up to four inches in diameter efficiently and effectively - much faster than tractor drawn or track machines;
• Clears up to two acres per hour.
