Branch sawing

Heliwest Ltd is Finland’s most experienced partner in helicopter sawing with over 20 years’ experience in clearance flights. A saw maneuvered by helicopter is a fast and efficient way to trim vegetation such as branches and tree tops around powerlines. Moreover it saves personnel resources of electric power companies, which is why numerous partners use our services on a regular basis.

Our battery consists of two types of saws: pruners where the blades rotate vertically, and top saws with double horizontally rotating blades. Vertical sawing removes twigs and branches over the entire extent of the tree trunk, providing far more forest friendly peeling than traditional methods where sprigs are predominantly removed from below.   

Destructions to powerlines caused by storms can often be prevented entirely by helicopter sawing.
