CS30/31 Combined 5 Day Chainsaw Maintenance & Felling Small Trees
Combined 5 Day – NPTC Assessment units 201,202 & 203
5 day Lantra CLMC 44X>
This is a combined course.
This combined course allows successful candidates to fell trees commercially up to 380mm diameter. The first day is workshop based, covering legislation, risk assessments, basic chainsaw maintenance, chain ID, sharpening and organising site safety.
The next four days take place in a forest and cover starting the saw safely, basic felling cuts, felling trees that lean back slightly, felling trees that lean forward significantly and manual take-down of hung up trees. For the purpose of this course, the length of the chainsaw bar is usually 15″ (380mm) and the tree will therefore not exceed bar length.
All our courses are full time.
The CS30 assessment is divided into two compulsory units
- Unit 201 (30.1) – Maintenance of the chainsaw
- Unit 202 (30.2) – On-site preparation and basic crosscutting
The CS31 assessment contains four compulsory parts:
- Unit 203 (31) – Fell Small Trees
- Remove branches by appropriate methods
- Crosscut felled trees
- Takedown hung-up trees using hand tools
