This course covers the felling and processing of trees.

What topics will it cover?

The training takes place in working commercial woodlands, and is designed to prepare you for managing tree stands. This course takes us through straight forward felling of trees in woodland situations and then moves on to more challenging scenarios such as dealing with backward and forward leaning tress and hung-up trees.

We then deal with the subsequent processing and accurate cutting to length and stacking of timber, in accordance with forestry best practice, to ensure that we create a viable forestry product. This course can be run either on its own or in conjunction with Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross Cutting, or Felling Trees above 380mm.

How long will the course take?


Three days training plus one day independent assessment.

Is there an exam?

There is an assessment carried out by an independent assessor, which will be taken on a separate day from the training course.


You must have undertaken a Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross Cutting course before embarking on this, although they can run together.
