I helped replant a large area in Virginia working part time with the forestry department one summer. I rode in a thing that looked like a little outhouse pulled by a bulldozer. The “outhouse” rode on top of a huge coulter blade. I sat backwards, strapped into a seat with a little conveyor belt thing running between my legs. On either side I had bundles of 2,000 each saplings. My job was to sit there and place the little saplings into the rubber clamps traveling along the conveyor. It would take them down and deposit them into the gash cut by the coulter, then two small wheels would seal the ground by running alongside the gash.

I swear the bulldozer operator enjoyed torturing us. He would just aim that thing at a point in the distance and read a book or something I think. I say this because a couple times, he straddled a huge stump which had been cut. The coulter of course could not cut into it so it rode up on ton of it. One time my little outhouse was almost laying back horizontal when it “fell” off the edge of the stump her rolled us over. Even strapped in I hit my head hard on the roof of my little outhouse enclosure. I’m sure he was laughing to himself up there.
