Training

about problematic tree felling

Fully qualified tree felling team

Our qualified tree felling team have successfully completed Level 1 and 2 First Aid, Firefighting and attend regular refresher courses on all aspects related to the business and our Health & Safety Plan.

All personnel in our felling teams are qualified chainsaw as well as brushcutter operators.

Certain staff have studied further to obtain their Pest Control Licence (Reg. no. P33444), Herbicide Application, Wild Fire Suppression, Health & Safety Representatives, Tractor and Mounted Crane Operators.

Apart from the above they have been vigorously trained in the art of high altitude climbing, felling, rope work and aerial rescue.

The founding member, Pieter Boshoff, spent three years in the U.S.A. and has undergone training and trained others, in this field. He has distinguished himself in pruning programmes of big trees in New York, and was part of a picked team to do line clearing and felling of hazardous trees in the aftermath of Hurricane Fran in North Carolina.
