AHCARB202A – Fell Small Trees
This three day course builds on the skills and knowledge of Trim and Cut Felled Trees to teach students how to safely fall trees. The courses 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 40cm and the height of the tree is less than 15 metres. The course provides students with a toolbox to cut down trees including:
- Planning escape routes
- Cutting scarfs
- Cutting release cut or back cut
- Using wedges
- Bringing down hung-up trees
This course is similar in structure to the FPICOT2236 Fall Trees Manually (Basic) course. Generally this course will be undertaken by arborists students or people working in the electricity industry where this competency is required.
