Spreading fertiliser and lime makes economic sense. The job must be done right to achieve the best results.
Aerial spraying ensures the natural terrain and vegetation is not disturbed. Studies have shown that helicopters provide the most even coverage. When you use the correct type and dose of fertiliser it is good for both the environment and your bottom line.
This is, without a doubt, the best investment you can make if you manage a forest. An investment of just 22 euros per day will normally yield 1.5 to 2 m3 more timber over a 10 year period. And, because larger timber dimensions yield higher prices and lower operating costs, it means your ROI (return on investment) pays out more quickly than any other forestry measure. In addition, you can rest easy knowing the process does not impact acidity levels. Without helicopters, this type of fertilisation would be impossible.
Did you know forest fertilisation is a deductible expense, and may also be financed under "forestry expenditures" with corresponding tax benefits?
Fertilisation increases tree crown fertility and stem growth. One rule of thumb suggests that the site quality is increased by about 1 class within seven to ten years of fertilisation. In practical terms this means output doubles. After the period of increased growth, normal growth pattern will return if one does not wish to continue. So you see, fertilising is never a waste of time or money!
Research has shown that forest fertilisation has few environmental consequences.
If the established timber on a peat bog is not regularly fertilised and the drainage systems not maintained, aeration will be compromised and acidity levels will increase. If the peat bog is properly maintained the addition of fertiliser will yield significant increased growth. Compared with the cost of establishing a forest in a peat area, the cost of fertilisation is small, while the cost of NOT fertilising could be very expensive!
Spruce is extremely vulnerable in the first stages of growth. The use of glyphosate makes it robust and gives it the advantage it needs. Spraying is also clearly more profitable than manual application in fertile soil areas. Moreover, it improves conditions for natural regeneration and provides a fertilisation effect.
In order for spraying to be cost-effective, good logistics and experienced crews are required at all levels. Here at Pegasus Helicopter we have years of experience with this complex puzzle and that is your best guarantee for increased profits and results.
Every year Pegasus Helicopter spreads thousands of tons of lime over Norwegian lakes and rivers. This enhances biological diversity and returns fish stocks to original levels - good news for those in the fishing industry.
Too many grazing lands have low pH levels which cause the pastures to deteriorate significantly. If allowed to continue unmitigated, a vicious circle ensues that can be harmful to livestock. If allowed to reach levels lower than 5.5 pH no amount of additional lime will help.
Therefore, it is makes economic sense to use precautionary measures and bring pH levels up, thus securing the value of grazing lands.
