EuroForest Safety Notice:
We have had a recent incident where a chainsaw operator has suffered facial cuts and bruising after being struck by a branch, or crushed understorey, which was under tension.
He had been snedding and breaking down the crown of a previously felled Poplar.
When working on the crowns of hardwoods or big trees the chance of this happening is increased.
Please take this notice as a reminder to take extra care and time when working in a situation like this.
Better to be slower and go home safe and sound.
