Which one is better for pine trees: Manual harvesting or Mechanical harvesting?

Published Dec 29, 2021
Manual harvesting is totally conservative form of harvest compared with an automated one. However, whenever the producers use mechanical devices for harvesting, they have losses because the immature pine cones also fall from the tree. The fall of infant or unripe pine cones compromise the yield for the coming years.

Meanwhile, two National Universities are involved in research projects in order to improve the available mechanical devices and fine-tune the method preventing the harm for the pine trees.
