FWPCOT2236/FWPFGM2312 FALL TREES MANUALLY


FWPCOT2236 FALL TREES MANUALLY (basic)

This course covers the process of introductory or base-level that covers the felling procedures for relatively small trees with a low level of complexity and defines the standard required to: prepare and properly maintain equipment; determine the tree felling conditions, direction of fall, safe fall zone, exclusion zone and escape route; use safe tree felling techniques; use safe tree removal techniques. The course outcome will provide the student with the skills and knowledge for the process of small tree felling where hazards have been assessed as low risk

Method of Training

Practical, demonstrations, instructions and theory

Method of Assessment

Theory and practical assessment

Refresher/Update

Recommended every 12-18 months

All persons assessed as successfully meeting the assessment criteria will be marked as competent and will be issued with an Australian nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency assessed

FWPFGM3212 FALL TREES MANUALLY (intermediate)

he outcomes required to assess, plan and safely carry out manual tree-felling operations using a chainsaw are covered by this unit, covering the felling procedures for trees with a level of complexity that requires significant tree assessment and practical felling skills.

Competency in this unit should represent the ability to effectively fell most trees except very large trees, and/or those with significant defects and/or characteristics that cause excessive complexity.

It applies to trees that have a diameter greater than the bar length of the chainsaw.

Trees typical to the scope of this unit may include the following characteristics:

  • lean and weight distribution, which can be assessed and readily adapted to falling direction with the use of wedges and/or control with hinge-wood
  • various dimensions relative to local forest size distribution
  • limited visible damage or defect
  • species prone to free splitting and adverse reactions during felling
  • single or multi-stems
  • diameter of tree greater than chainsaw bar length
  • grown on terrain and slope that can add complexity to the operation

All persons assessed as successfully meeting the assessment criteria will be marked as competent and will be issued with an Australian nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency assessed
