Aerial Tree Cutting
This advanced level Level 3 Award in Aerial Rigging will cover rigging techniques used to dismantle the tree. This course supercedes the old CS41 ticket.
What is covered?
In addition to health and safety aspects, relevant legislation concerning climbing such as LOLER, and visual tree assessments will be covered. The course covers potential loading of various rigging setups and relates that to equipment compatibility; you'll also be covering tip ties, butt ties and cradling techniques as well as chogging down sections - depending on candidates experience we may also cover more advanced techniques, if we get the chance.
