Ash Dieback; chainsaw operations, operational planning and communication
Ash Dieback disease or Chalara (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) is killing a large number of Ash trees, resulting in trees with a very high proportion of deadwood in the crown and also likely to have no significant fibre strength at felling height. When harvesting/felling these trees, careful planning is essential. The primary consideration must be whether the job can be done using mechanical harvesting equipment where the operator is in a protective cab. Where this is not possible, it is more important than ever that a chainsaw operator is both competent and properly equipped.
All events take place 5-8pm.
