Chainsaw Training - Felling and processing trees up to 380mm (CS31)
Felling and Processing trees up to 380mm (CS31)
This course covers site safety and risk assessment, assessing individual trees for hazards, standard felling cuts, and specialist cuts for trees which lean backward slightly or lean forward severely. Inevitably trees will sometimes get hung-up, so the candidate is shown how to take down hung-up trees safely, and is also taught why certain procedures are unsafe and should not be used. Processing felled trees is then covered, including correct de-limbing and cross-cutting to length and understanding tension and compression in felled timber.
Following training, the candidate is then assessed by an assessor and successful candidates will receive an Lantra or NPTC Certificate of Competence.
Todds Leap Training offer a wide range of chainsaw courses that are accredited by Lantra or NPTC.
