The Art of Felling Timber

About the Book

This book was created to teach the timber feller who already has a working knowledge to fall trees; this book is not for the beginner chainsaw operator. The Art of Felling Timber is a study guide that presents rules of safety and alternative methods for safely felling trees including those that have been compromised by fire. The procedures and techniques that are in this guide book will assist the feller and felling partner (felling team) in making the right choices, to fell or not to fell trees, including trees that have been fire weakened. Methods discussed in this book, include how to safely remove danger trees, or just to notify, flag and walk away. This book was designed to teach the felling team to work together, and to have a strong mutual understanding of critical decision making within the team. A training simulation program at the back of this book, using an artificial 2 dimensional chain saw and a number of trees, including fire-weakened trees and bucking template scenarios can be used. This will give the feller prior working knowledge on how to understand the safety rules and cutting procedure that would be used when faced with trees, fire-weakened trees, and bucking situations. The number 1 rule of thumb is safety first for you and your fellow workers. This complete edition is also available for free with your first workshop.
