The new DAVEC Vee Rake is able to move freshly harvested eucalypt (or pine) debris away from the planting line to ensure a clean, debris free, plowed mound, ready to be planted.
I mention fresh eucalypt debris because it is normally difficult to handle, however the high tensile scrapers prevent the bark from becoming lodged in the fingers of the rake.
The difference between a planting site full of debris and a clean, fully cultivated planting site is a DAVEC Vee Rake.
The difference between a planting site full of debris and a clean site is probably an increase in seedling survival of 30%.
You can now achieve a consistent 100% seedling survival rate.
It is important to aim for a full and even complement of trees over the whole site. Overplanting to offset poor survival is wasteful – and wasteful each year for the length of the rotation.
