This standard is about the removal of single limb / parts of tree canopy to the complete removal of trees without the use of rigging equipment. It is also about the removal of tree sections from the crown using free-fall or hand thrown techniques.

You will gain access and carry out cutting operations in line with the above assessment from a rope and harness.

Due to elements of this course being in a woodland area, candidates require their own transport or alternatively must notify the centre before the course so alternative options can be sourced.
