FWPFGM3212

Fall Trees Manually (Intermediate)

The training in this course will cover the skills and knowledge required by chainsaw operators in a non-production environment, including forest, rural and community environments, to assess, plan and safely carry out manual tree-felling operations using a chainsaw. It covers the felling procedures for trees with a level of complexity that requires significant tree assessment and practical felling skills. Persons competent with these skills should be able to effectively fell most trees except very large trees, and/or those with significant defects and/or characteristics that cause excessive complexity, specifically, trees that have a diameter greater than the bar length of the chainsaw.
