Harvesting Contractors

Harvesting contractors are companies that work as plant or forest clearing services, and by placing herbicide on felled trees. These services may be rendered to government municipalities or owners of private property.
 
Harvesting contractors must work in compliance with certain regulations as stipulated by the Department of Environmental and Water Affairs. In the past, harvesting was done by the use of manual labour. Manual labour resulted in high risk working conditions, which in turn encouraged harvesting contractors to move towards mechanisation. There has also been a move within the industry to improve the quality of harvesting operations by curbing unnecessary destructive and inefficient harvesting practices. Harvesting companies perform various kinds of work from steep ground harvesting, to wind farm clearance operations, to thinning trees for better long term harvesting production.
 
Harvesting companies usually work on a contractual basis. Profits are made either by direct payments to the harvester after completion of work, or by the harvesting contractor taking ownership of the felled trees as per the contract. The felled trees are than sold to various buyers who will make use of the timber to produce a number of different kinds of products. Written contracts and agreements between harvesting contractors and employers are hugely important in order to avoid ownership issues. The contracts usually state the terms of employment and payments, as well as the conditions of access to the property and the boundaries of the operation.
 
Some harvesting contractors work exclusively for the government.
