For processing clean wood into reusable materials Blanchard's Forestry Equipment division recommends using a wood chipper. The blade on a chipper slices or “‘chips” the tree into small, evenly shaped pieces. The chips are then pushed through a chute into the back of a chip van.

The wood can also be “de-barked” before being sent through the chipper, resulting in "clean chips."  Clean chips are taken to a mill and processed for pulp or pellet manufacturing. Like grind material, chips with the bark still attached, or “dirty chips” are used for many bio-energy applications including hog fuel (erosion control), bio-mass energy, or boiler fuel.

Our forestry division carries a full line of Peterson Chippers,as well as Peterson Debarkers, all of which are run by Cat engines.
