I came across this odd thing... apparently it's a conversion from a stock bulldozer, and is used to harvest saplings:

Great find Ray! If someone had built that model, no one would believe it had a prototype!

Really extraordinary, Ray. This thing would be worth to be rebuild as a model. I'll put it on my to-do list

Here's another one made by International Harvester circa 1944:

Also if you search "bare roots tree harvester" on YouTube you can find a couple videos of a modern version in action.
