The FIST (Fiberglass Insulated Seedling Transport)

Setting the standard in seedling transport.

The FIST (Fiberglass Insulated Seedling Transport) represents a quality breakthrough in seedling transport. By maintaining lower temperatures, increasing seedling respiration, and reducing handling, the FIST reduces seedling stress and increases seedling survival. The result: a healthy, vigorous plantation.

FIST seedling transport

The large capacity of 20,000 boxed seedlings—a day's work for your tree planting crew—means fewer field caches. Reduced handling and easy-access adjustable racks reduce labor, back injuries, and potential workers compensation claims. Rubber floor mats protect from slips/falls and spiked boots.

Easily mounted on any full size pickup, the FIST tree planting equipment unit is versatile. It is trailerable, and can be fitted for helicopter lifts to remote areas. And, when it's not carrying seedlings, the FIST easily transports camp equipment and tree planting supplies.

 

Seedling Transport Quote

"THE FIST CANOPY IS NOW THE STANDARD SEEDLING TRANSPORTATION UNIT FOR PLANTING CREWS ACROSS BC.

It consolidates seedlings and planting crews, and reduces stock handling, thereby minimizing the need for seedling caches and freeing the crew boss to focus more on planting quality. The resulting operational advantages are reduced planting cost, with improved stock handling and seedling growth."
