RSFS Tour Deeside – Fetteresso Forest
The photograph is courtesy of the family of George Dey. George took many forestry photographs in his forestry career and many are now shown on this web site. Check under ‘Groups’ and George Dey Collection.
RSFS tour and visit to harvesting site in Fetteresso Forest where the main subject appears to be thinning with a timber harvester during the early days of bringing in smaller harvester heads onto smaller excavator bases. This could be a an Atlas excavator base and certainly has a Pika 450 harvesting head fitted and carrying out thinning operations in Sitka spruce.
