Wildlife Danger Tree – Forest Harvest & Silviculture Module
October 10, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT
An event every day that begins at 8:00am, repeating until October 10, 2019
This 2-day classroom and field course trains participants to identify wildlife dangerous trees and assess steps necessary to ensure worker safety and habitat protection when operating around wildlife/dangerous trees. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to identify potential habitat, determine which trees are safe and dangerous in various settings, determine if dangerous trees should be removed or modified, and establish no-work zones. This process is applicable to all work activities in forested settings including harvesting (especially relevant to partial cutting where various group retention, shelterwood or individual tree retention systems are employed), silviculture, and roads. This certification is recognized by Worksafe BC.
