This three to four-day course builds on the skills and knowledge of Trim and Cut Felled Trees to teach students how to safely fall trees. The course teaches students how to fall trees where hazards are assessed as low to moderate. This is typically without a strong lean or structural defect and trees where the diameter at breast height is less than 80cm and the height of the tree is less than 30 metres. The course provides students with a larger tool box of skills to use when falling trees, including:
- Using multiple wedges
- Using multiple back cuts
- Different scarfing methods and when they should be used
- Side boring
