Course Outline

The Basic Fall Trees course covers how to assess, plan and safely carry out manual tree-felling operations using a chainsaw. It is an introductory or base-level unit that covers the felling procedures for relatively small trees with a low level of complexity.

Techniques for trees with a diameter greater than the bar length, while not excluded, would generally be regarded as techniques beyond the scope of this course.

This course involves tree felling in a variety of work settings, which may include a forest, agricultural, domestic, local council, and emergency services, and other government agency environment. With the exception of minor forest produce, it is not considered a suitable level for commercial harvesting operations.

This course can also be completed in combination with the other Chainsaw courses listed on our site.
