Solving the problem of the accumulation of fallen trees as a result of storms and hurricanes
Due to the recent storms, a large number of trees were felled by strong gusts of wind on roads and urban roads, thus causing a major problem in traffic safety. However, another major problem caused by falling trees is what to do to dispose of the huge amount of material collected from the roads. Not to mention the environmental impact already caused by the loss of green mass in the environment. Therefore, finding a solution that does not cause further damage to the environment is simply vital.
Fortunately, all this green mass felled by hurricanes or cyclones can be fully reused to revitalize the environment from which they were removed. The way to reuse this material is by crushing and decomposing green waste through composting, but it can also be used immediately as a soil cover without being decomposed. In order to carry out this work, the agency responsible for collecting and cleaning these green residues must have a truck to collect the crushed material and a wood chipper (if you do not have a wood picker, you can purchase a wood chipper equipped with a tipping bucket own).
Usage and Results Impressions
The chipping of the material can be done directly at the collection site, thus greatly speeding up not only the work of accommodating the residues in the truck, but also the transport, since the crushed material has a volume of only about 20% of the material not crushed.
After shredding, the material is subjected to controlled decomposition (composting) to produce a rich organic fertilizer that can be used to revitalize the soil damaged by intense rains, gusts or hurricanes. Soil enrichment will ensure that plants that have withstood the storms are strong enough to prevent further damage to the environment and guarantee a better quality of life for the local population.
