Special tree felling techniques and forest management safety

The tree felling techniques course aims to convey special techniques developed over more than a decade by a team of instructors of IFT to firstly increase safety and comfort in one of the jobs with the highest incidence of accidents in the world: the cutting of trees in the logging activity. These techniques aim to direct the fall of the trees, allowing for greater use of the logs (less waste of wood), thus minimizing the impacts to the forest and causing reduced damage to the remaining trees while cutting other trees. Then, the course also covers aspects related to the maintenance of chainsaws and techniques to increase the life of this piece of equipment.
