Evolution of Modern Tree Planting Machines

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

The thousands of tree planting machines now in use stem from three basic designs, developed independently at four Land Grant colleges during the war years, when labor for planting trees by hand was extremely limited. Earlier attempts at mechanized tree planting, with the exception of the Great Plains shelterbelt tree planter, were isolated, and only one appeared on the market and for only a short period. The three basic prototypes developed during the mid-1940's are here described, with notes about the men who contributed to the designs. These types of machines are now currently manufactured by private industry under numerous and well publicized trade names.
