safety considerations for wildlife trees
Are there other worker safety
Some wildlife trees present a hazard to workers and some do not. In general, the risk that a tree is dangerous is related to its decay class and factors such as tree defects, lean, wild exposure or slope and the type of work activity to be carried out.
The following information about safety considerations is based on the nine classifications of wildlife trees (figure 8).
Classes 3, 4, & 5
