Wood stress simulator

Processing damaged wood after a storm calls for care and technical expertise. A stress simulator (tree bending simulator) highlights the frequently underestimated risks and is used by tree-felling operators.

With PEFC certification, many forestry operations are committed to high standards of work safety. Working with power saws, the various cutting techniques – and in particular the sawing of trees that are under stress – can be efficiently and practically performed using the stress simulator.
