Chainsaw - Award in Felling Trees up to 380mm

Course content

This qualification is about the directional felling of trees using a chainsaw. The felling technique will be appropriate to tree size, weight, condition and species as well as taking into account guidebar size and weather conditions. 

This covers both coniferous and broadleaved trees, trees that are upright, trees that are weighted towards and that are weighted against a given felling direction. If you are working with chemicals or machinery you need to be appropriately trained or certificated in line with current legislation. 


The five-day course covers both CS30 and CS31.
