This video shows the application of a Tree puller. This is a simple tool that works on the principle of a claw, fulcrum and an arm as lever with which trees with a stem diameter of up to 5cm (2 inch) and with relatively shallow rooting systems can be uprooted. The tool eases the effort of uprooting small trees and is highly relevant for: (esthetic) urban/rural public gardening, managing road side plantation; tree plantations such as coffee (uprooting of old trees); pastoralist areas for clearing of grazing lands; clearing of invasive species.
