Trees typical to the scope of this unit may include the following characteristics:
lean and weight distribution that adds significant complexity yet can be assessed and adapted to site requirements
larger dimensions relative to local forest size distribution
damage or defect that requires complex felling techniques
multi-legged, hollow butts, culls and stags
species prone to free splitting and adverse reactions during felling
single or complex multi-stems
diameter of tree greater than chainsaw bar length
grown on terrain and slope that can add significant complexity to the operation
The unit applies to a non-production environment, including forest, rural and community environments.
