Savings by fast rotation – THE EFFECT OF MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE FROM THE START!

 

Rotation time – a term that has entered into our consciousness over the last decade…Rotation time – a term that has entered into our consciousness over the last decade…We all try to optimise our businessess, by mechanising, by making better products (side and bottom pruning, leader control etc.), by uniforming our trees more and more.But one of the things that has not yet had our full attention is the rotation time. By minimising the rotation time of a Christmas tree stand, you actually save and thereby earn money – more than you might think. You do not only reduce your costs i.e. spraying, fertilising, pruning and so on in the later year/years of the rotation, but you also save interest for the land lease, and you can start a new production a year or two earlier. These are hardcore facts. On top of this you will often start harvesting 1 year earlier, thereby improving cashflow, again resulting in reduced interest, or alternatively in more to invest. And you will minimize your overall rotation risk.How then do you minimise the rotation time? By starting out with the best possible seedlings, an optimal stand establishment, and good stand management practices. We can certainly help you with the initial stage!

At Majland, we are convinced that by choosing the best possible seedlings, you will be able to reduce the rotation time by at least one year and produce more uniform trees. If this is true, then consider this:

At Majland, we are convinced that by choosing the best possible seedlings, you will be able to reduce the rotation time by at least one year and produce more uniform trees. If this is true, then consider this:

  • Less loss of seedlings the first year                                                   = less replanting                                                         = money saved.
  • Good establishment of seedlings                                                      = slimmer trees, more trees per pallet                       = money saved.
  • Better average quality                                                                        = better average price                                                = money earned.
  • Larger precentage of harvested trees                                               = better return on the full plantation                        = money earned.

Although probably more things can be considered, the bottomline is, by buying superior quality seedlings, you may spend a little more on stand establishment, but compared to the total costs over a generation, it is marginal, and the gain when harvesting the plantation is substantial.

2/0 – Gives a slender tree

The seedlings have spent two years in the seedbed and have not been transplanted. A major benefit of selecting 2/0 plants is that they are graded according to height and are therefore very easy to plant with most planting machines. In addition, 2/0 stock will produce slender trees as the first whorl of branches is set in the new planting location. The seedling then has a full year to become established, producing long terminal leaders and preventing the formation of “wide bottoms”.

2/1 – A sure starter

The seedlings have spent two years in the seedbed followed by one year in a transplant bed.
With their optimum root/top ratio, these are the most traditional seedlings in our range. They are very sure starters, and a preferred choice on heavy soils for stand establishment under difficult conditions.

3/0 – Vigorous seedlings

The seedlings have spent three years in the seedbed, thinned as 2/0.
They have not been transplanted. The seedlings have a well-balanced root/top ratio and an ideal height of 15-25 cm. As the seedlings have remained undisturbed in the seedbed, they have a more vigorous top and tend to have more buds in the upper whorl than 2/1 seedlings.

2/2 – One year less in the plantation

The seedling has spent two years in the seedbed followed by two years in a transplant bed.
These are the most vigorous seedlings in our range.
With a height of 15-35 cm and a large root collar diameter, they provide harvestable Christmas trees a year before three-year-old stock.
