Tractor lifting logs

Whether you’re a recreational or commercial farmer, real estate developer, or construction worker, it’s imperative to have the right forestry tools for your project. 

Titan Attachments is a company specializing in forestry tools with over 30 years of experience. This guide will help you find the right forestry accessories from our incredible range of products, including affordable and high-quality log splitters. 

The three main types of forestry tools are:

  1. Tools for cutting trees and brush, such as saws and shears
  2. Tools for moving fallen trees, limbs, and debris, such as grapples, winches, and buckets
  3. Tools for repurposing those pieces such as wood chippers and firewood processors

You can use each forestry tool for different needs, like removing trees or maintaining a healthy forest.

Here are some things to think about before you buy a new forestry tool:

  • What type of terrain are you working on?
  • How much weight can the machine carry?
  • What kind of work will you be doing?
  • What size trees will you cut down or remove?
  • Do you need a machine that can handle steep slopes?
