If you’re looking for a machine to mechanize your forest planting needs, you have come to the right place.
After extensive forest trials and more than 2 million planted seedlings on our prototype we now have a machine ready to do the job and the first production units are either already in the forest working or on their way to different parts of the world.
We started out with production tests in 2020, performed on Sveaskog and SCA sites, where we verified the functionality and durability of the different components. After making some minor adjustments to a number of components we then finished another planting season in 2021 planting sites for three of the major Swedish forest companies Sveaskog, SCA and Holmen. Later Holmen ordered a machine that was delivered in May 2022.
After finishing the planting in Sweden in 2021 we moved the Machine to North America were we have conducted a very successful run throughout the planting season of the southeast US, from the foothills of the Appalachian mountains in Alabama, to the Piney woods of Texas, to the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Not only did we plant all containerized seedlings we came across, both Loblolly and Longleaf pine, we also managed to succesfully plant bare root seedlings.
Late spring and summer of 2022 has been spent in the Great forest of New Brunswick Canada and we will stay in Canada until the planting season starts again in the Southeast US.
To see the machine in action, please check the Plantma YouTube channel which features the introduction video below and some other material. More will be added during the season. We will also be posting on LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook, so make sure to follow us there.
