FWPCOT2236 – Fell Trees Manually Basic

This unit of competency describes the outcomes required to assess and manually fall small trees with a low level of complexity and to complete operator maintenance.

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

  • lean and distribution of the crown weight does not create a complex situation to assess or fell
  • small dimensions relative to local forest size distribution
  • no excessive lean
  • no visible damage or defect
  • species that are not prone to free splitting and adverse reactions during felling
  • single stem or non-complex multi-stems
  • diameter of tree is less than chainsaw bar length
  • grown on terrain and slope that does not add significant complexity to the operation

The unit applies to those in a forest, agricultural, local council, emergencies services and other government agency environment. With the exception of minor forest produce, it is not relevant to commercial harvesting operations.
