Modern tree rigging techniques are designed to reduce the labour intensive work and to eliminate potential damage to property while removing limbs or whole trees. Every piece of the tree that is lowered can be controlled until it reaches its dedicated landing zone. A well trained rigging crew will maximise productivity and minimise accidental property damage.
Good tree rigging training will reduce the labour involved and the risk of accidental property damage when dismantling trees.
Tree rigging is the art of dismantling parts of or whole trees using ropes, blocks and pulleys. It can range from large pieces of timber to awkwardly shaped branches and tight drop zones where damage has to either be kept to a minimum or eliminated entirely. Tree rigging is possibly one of the most complex of all tree working situations and can involve a vast range of knowledge on subjects such as physics, wood properties, equipment ratings, rope strengths and good working communications between a wide range of staff members.
The Introduction to Tree Rigging training is tailored specifically for the novice tree rigger. The aim is to impart knowledge about the basic principles of tree rigging. Introduction to Tree Rigging training gives insight into theoretical and practical tree rigging techniques, limitations of different gear, rigging systems, working methods, different knots and important safety measures. Successful completion enables the participant to perform basic tree rigging work.
This course is designed for experienced arborist and tree workers who want to take there tree rigging skills to the next level. After attending this tree rigging training the participant will know how to asses and conduct large tree dismantles safely and efficiently.
This workshop is designed for experienced arborist and tree workers who want to learn about the full potential of sky lines and speed lines in tree work. After attending this workshop the participant will know how to conduct safe and efficient tree dismantles using sky and speed lines for tree work.
This tree rigging training will introduce the participants to the complexity of tree rigging with the Good Rigging Control System (GRCS). After attending this workshop the participant will know how to use and maintain the GRCS safely and efficiently.
This workshop is designed for experienced aerial tree workers and arborists who want to learn how to conduct a safe and efficient crane assisted tree removal. This workshop does not replace the NZQA standard 3789, but covers additional knowledge essential to arborists.
