"SLASHBUSTER"® equipment is used to reduce ladder fuels which fire can "climb up" and into the canopy. This helps reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire by keeping flame height low and on the ground.
In this situation a tree is
laying against an old growth Ponderosa Pine.
The operator reaches up with the "SLASHBUSTER"®
material handler and plucks the top half of
the problem tree away.
