FWPCOT2236 – Fall 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.
