A specialist course dealing with windblown and storm damaged trees.

What topics will it cover?

These sorts of trees are notoriously dangerous, and behave in very unpredictable ways.

Using winches to control root plate movement and side tension, we can safely use various chainsaw techniques to restore these trees to a safe condition.

You will also learn how to deal with broken and half-blown trees and apply these techniques to larger areas of wind and storm damaged trees. We will show you how to approach this complicated situation, and the sequence of events to follow to ensure your safety.

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.


Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross Cutting, Felling Trees up to 380mm, and Felling Trees above 380mm.

How much will it cost?

£325+VAT per person
