EBF-C Bark Beetle Cutter

Due to heavy storm damage, forest protection in spruce forests is forced to prevent the outbreak of the bark beetle as quickly as possible. For this purpose, the bark is usually completely peeled from the trunk in order to destroy the bark beetle or to provide it with no habitat. However, the peeling of the wood prevents the renaturation of the forest and is accompanied by a massive loss of biodiversity. As a compromise to complete debarking, it is a good idea to score the logs. The bark beetle needs an area of about 5 cm² to feel at home. By scoring the trunk, the bark beetle is deprived of its habitat without severely limiting the renaturation of the forest. The EDER – bark beetle cutter EBF-C has 4 knives that score the trunk at a distance of 24 mm, thus enabling rapid scoring of the entire trunk. The Eder bark beetle cutter can be attached as an attachment kit to a wide range of commercially available chainsaws.
