Roy Hauser - About Us

We are the Art of Felling Timber

Our Team

What started out as a vision, to create an advanced tree felling course, has grown over the years into a nationally recognized training program. Additional course options have allowed us to bring more people into our program. Not only through advanced courses, but also providing to our new and less experienced sawyers with beginner courses as well. 

Of course this wouldn’t be possible without an amazing team that shares a passion for teaching others.

Qualifications: Class C’ (FAL1)

The author, Roy Hauser, has decades of experience in the field of hazardous timber felling. He works to educate for the safety of Timber Fellers by designing new course materials.

Roy wrote The Art of Felling Timber to teach Fellers what to expect before facing dangerous and complex felling scenarios, having over 30 years of experience in all aspects of timber felling. Roy was a co-author of the S-212 chainsaw course in 1992 in a segment called Fire Weakened Timber.

He was a saw boss for the Zig Zag Interagency Type 1 Hotshot crew based out of Mount Hood Oregon, under the supervision of Paul Gleason.

The author has worked in the logging and forest industry for over 20 years, managing private timberlands for wildland fire prevention. Roy Hauser has also worked as a contract timber feller on many wildland forest fires all over the Pacific Northwest. He has trained, what he considers to be, some of the finest Timber Fellers in the field today, using the techniques in his book.

Roy is currently a Region 6 consultant for the USFS and consults the BLM in Oregon. His message: “I hope that all who study The Art of Felling Timber, will share in the safety, mechanical application, teamwork, and discipline that this guidebook has to offer.”
