Recommended Posts

I thought I'd show you a little of what we do here at Pershore College. We run courses in level 1 Woodland Skills, level 2 Arboriculture, level 3 Arboriculture, through to FdSc and BSc in Arboriculture.

 

Apprenticeships are becoming increasingly popular, especially with employers and of course we run the short courses -

If you're teaching them to fell that high they'll be chucked straight out of the woods on day 1.

 

Or the man on the forwarder will give them a slap round the back of the head :laugh1::laugh1:

Great photos as always John. Hope you're enjoying the teaching. We should have a chat sometime about a work placement or something as our office is only a few minutes away!

2nd pic: Gob size good but too high. If you're teaching them to fell that high they'll be chucked straight out of the woods on day 1.

 

 

Yawn. They're arb students - why be so negative about a post with some great photos?!

It's constructive criticism, aiming to instill good working practices and ensure students aren't being taught incorrectly. The OP said "woodland skills". Either way, timber or arb operatives shouldn't be a) wasting timber, b) causing obstructions for forest machines and so on.

Thanks for your feedback, I'm a lecturer, students are also with an instructor. If every student felled a tree perfectly from day one there would be nothing to teach and the world would be a very boring place. Students do receive constructive feedback and are well aware of timber wastage and forest machines - thank you.

The harvester that just went through by here left higher stumps than in the picture, anyway the putt sweep would be wasted on that tree if milled.

 

I was looking more at his grip.
