Current Foundations Skills (FS) tables refer to ‘calculate mass of trees and determine fall zone’. Question raised about whether or not calculating the mass of trees is required when ‘falling’ trees. Is calculating the mass of trees only required for harvesting trees or for both ‘falling’ and ‘harvesting’? If only relevant to harvesting units then may need to amend FS to read ‘determine fall zone’ in the three falling units.

The issue will be addressed in the next minor upgrade of the FWP Training Package, following discussion and/or confirmation across the stakeholder network.
