FLS Safety Alert
An experienced chainsaw operator was felling larch trees in close proximity to a public road. The operator intended to fell the tree away from the road but the tree became hung-up, then pivoted and fell through standing trees directly across the public road. There was no traffic control or signage in place. The tree struck the rear of a passing vehicle and caused damage to the roof and wheels. Fortunately, no one was physically hurt in the incident.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
