This course follows on from chainsaw maintenance and crosscutting. Felling and processing trees is great fun, hard work and immensely rewarding.

  • Risk assessment and emergency procedures/ site safety
  • Personnel Protective Equipment P.P.E

Felling and Processing Trees up to 380mm Assessment

Unit 203 (previously CS31) assessments are carried out directly after the 3 day course, or at a more convenient date later on.

 

Assessment only: For candidates who feel they have enough experience to pass, we offer an assessment only option. We do however recommend our one-day refresher course for anyone who feels that additional support will help achieve a pass.
