Our course in dealing with uprooted and windblown trees, will provide you with the opportunity to practice and update your skills, appropriate techniques and safety guidelines required in order to ensure that you are not only confident when using a chainsaw but also aware of the relevant health and safety guidelines in relation to dealing with uprooted and windblown trees.
