Responsible reforestation entails much more than the simple planting of a seedling. Seedlings are often subject to stress from temperature and moisture extremes as well as physical damage that can occur during transport. The FIST unit significantly reduces such seedling stress during reforestation, resulting in a healthy, vigorous plantation.
In addition to improving reforestation quality, the FIST also reduces costs by simplifying and reducing handling, resulting in reduced labor costs and fewer worker compensation claims.

The FIST unit is currently being utilized by various Forest Services, Bureau of Land Management offices, and private contractors in the states of Washington, Oregon, California, Montana, and Idaho, as well as throughout Canada.
Made of fiberglass and fully insulated with R12 Perm-a-therm, the FIST unit acts as a big cooler for seedlings. An optional oscillating, wind-propelled vent allows for ventilation in the unit, and a white gel coat exterior reflects heat.

The FIST unit has 275 cubic feet holding capacity and fits easily onto any full-size pickup truck. The unit bolts directly to the floor. When not in use, just take it off your truck for more flexibility with your vehicles. It measures 103″x 79″x 79″ outside, and 99″x 76.5″x 75″ inside. (69.5″x 48.5″ door opening.)

Additional features include galvanized steel rear door frame with stainless steel piano hinges, bolted aluminum 2″x 2″ angle shelf supports, integrated wall and roof reinforcing, an insulating non-skid 3/8″ rubber floor mat, and a lockable galvanized steel door latch.

All interior walls are classified as Food Grade/Sanitary. They clean easily and can be disinfected.
The FIST unit is available with a helicopter lift option for remote use and Brophy jacks if you choose to remove the unit from your truck in the off-season.
