||A Feller Buncher
is a mobile machine, either rubber tired or tracked, with a power plant, operator
enclosure, and an articulating extensible arm onto which a felling head is attached. The
felling head consists of grappling devices and either a disc saw or chain saw. The
operator moves the machine into position in front of a tree and maneuvers the felling head
to the tree trunk. The grappling devices wrap around the tree and the saw severs the tree
from the stump. The machine then takes the severed vertical tree and lowers it into a
horizontal position onto a pile or bunch of trees on the ground, hence the term feller buncher.
