The Oneida County Land and Water Conservation Department, along with the Wisconsin DNR, has several pieces of forestry equipment to rent out to landowners and/or contractors. Available is a portable timber bridge, tree planter and anchor chain (aka scarifier).
The portable timber bridge is mostly used by loggers to cross a small stream or wetland. It is 25 feet in length and breaks down to fit on a trailer.
New decking has been installed recently and it is ready to go.
The pull behind tree planter is great behind an ATV or tractor, but a hand planter is also available. Good to use if you do not have many trees to plant or used in areas the pull along planter cannot get to. The hand planter can also be used on natural areas where motorized vehicles are not allowed or not desirable.
Our anchor chain, also call a scarifier, is used to provide a mineral soil seedbed for natural or artificial seeding, or for planting on larger parcels of land. The anchor chain comes with a trailer for easy transportation.
If you are involved in logging operations and/or forestry restoration, keep us in mind for the right piece of equipment. You do not have to be an Oneida County resident to lease equipment.
