This unit covers the felling procedures for trees with a level of complexity that requires significant tree assessment and practical felling skills.

Persons competent in this unit 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.

It applies to trees that have a diameter greater than the bar length of the chainsaw.

Trees typical to the scope of this unit may include the following characteristics:

  • lean and weight distribution, which can be assessed and readily adapted to falling direction with the use of wedges and/or control with hinge-wood
  • various dimensions relative to local forest size distribution
  • limited visible damage or defect
  • species prone to free splitting and adverse reactions during felling
  • single or multi-stems
  • diameter of tree greater than chainsaw bar length
  • grown on terrain and slope that can add complexity to the operation

 

The unit applies to a non-production environment, including forest, rural and community environments.
