Mechanical planting a suitable method in difficult terrain
Mechanical planting has a lot of advantages, which especially in difficult terrain can compensate for the somewhat higher cost.

The prerequisites for a higher degree of mechanisation in the regeneration process were discussed at a seminar on mechanical planting arranged by Södra (the Association of South Swedish Forest Owners).

Information on performance, plant survival and costs for different planting machines was presented by external lecturers at the seminar. A comparison of costs showed that for large-scale forestry the net cost is approximately 40% higher per plant with mechanical planting, but the difference is less if factors such as plant survival and growth are included. While Holmen, Södra and the Swedish Forest Agency (average for the whole country) demonstrated a plant survival of 70%, 70% and 60% respectively, the survival percentage for planting carried out by a Bracke P11.a Planter is on average 80% (source: the Forestry Research Institute of Sweden [SkogForsk]).

Pl1.a, which is mounted on an excavator or harvester, also produces very good results even on very hilly and stony ground. Mechanical planting on such land stands out as a very competitive alternative.
