The NPTC Felling Trees to 380mm course is delivered over three days by John Jones Training.
This qualification is about the directional felling of trees using a chainsaw. The felling technique will be appropriate to tree size, weight, condition and species as well as taking into account guidebar size and weather conditions. This covers both coniferous and broadleaved trees, trees that are upright, trees that are weighted towards and that are weighted against a given felling direction.
Anyone working in or on trees is expected to hold a recognised certificate of competence. If you are self-employed, the regulations still apply.
