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.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory, or certification requirements apply to this unit in some states & territories at the time of publication and may differ according to jurisdiction.

If you are a forestry worker, chainsaw operator, forest harvester, harvesting technician or arboriculture worker, where the production of timber is not the primary focus of the activity, then this course is right for you.
