FWPFGM3213 - Fall trees manually (advanced)

 

Course Information

This unit of competency describes the outcomes required to assess, plan and safely carry out manual tree-felling operations using a chainsaw.

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

Persons competent in this unit should be able to effectively fell trees of any size, species and condition, including those with significant defects and characteristics that cause excessive felling complexity, that are deemed safe to fell.

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

  • lean and weight distribution that adds significant complexity yet can be assessed and adapted to site requirements
  • larger dimensions relative to local forest size distribution
  • substantial lean
  • damage or defect that requires complex felling techniques
  • multi-legged, hollow butts, culls and stags
  • species prone to free splitting and adverse reactions during felling
  • single or complex multi-stems
  • diameter of tree greater than chainsaw bar length
  • grown on terrain and slope that can add significant complexity to the operation

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

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
