Steenbek & Visser introduce Innovative Compact Waxing Line for young trees

Visser Horti Systems developed an innovative yet affordable waxing system to protect young trees. This new waxing machine is compact, uses a minimal amount of wax and reuses it, and yet provides 100% coverage of the stems. This high capacity waxing line is equipped with a packing line and can wax & pack 5000 plants per hour.

The forestry sector has been plagued by the notorious pine weevil, the Hylobius abietis, for over more than a century now. Destroying this weevil by insecticides has been effective, but harmful to the environment.

The Forest Stewardship Council has been working on regulation to realize a pesticide free forest industry. Up to now, the ambition and regulations are clear, yet the industry has very limited options in affordable, environmentally friendly methods to protect the trees.

Visser Horti Systems has together with Holmen Skog been focusing on this important challenge and developed an innovative yet affordable waxing system to protect young trees. This new waxing machine is compact, uses a reduced amount of wax and reuses it, and yet provides a very good coverage of the stems.
This high capacity waxing line is equipped with a packing line and can wax & pack up to 5000 plants per hour. Since all plants are graded in line before waxing and packing, a reduced amount of wax is being used and only ever usable trees are being shipped.

Please visit us during SkogsElmia 2015 to learn everything about our new release at booth 434 where Visser & Steenbek (your distributor for Scandinavia) will present this revolution in tree waxing and the full gamma for the automation for reforestation.
