    Description

    The John Deere bundler was originally designed to collect material behind a cut‐to‐length (CTL) operation, where the biomass feedstock is distributed across the harvested site. While the occurrence of a CTL operation is common in Europe, it is rarely used in the southern United States. Southern logging typically involves a tree‐length operation, where the whole tree is skidded to the landing for processing. Therefore, the residual portions of the tree (primarily limbs and tops), which can be used as a biomass feedstock, are already located on the landing and available for the market.
