FISA 302

Basic chainsaw felling and manual takedown

This guide contains industry agreed safe working practices which should be followed when using a chainsaw to fell and take down trees.

It does not cover techniques where the trees are too small to accommodate a sink cut, nor does it include where wire cable, rope or machinery is used in the directional or assisted felling of trees.
