RWAS Treefelling competition
Royal Welsh Treefelling Competition
Every year the RWAS holds a chainsaw logging and treefelling competition somewhere out in the woodlands of Wales. This years’ competition is a two day event which is taking place in one of the RWAS woodlands in Llanelwedd.
The competition is split into 3 sections “Expert” (previous competitors over 25), “24 years & under” (previous competitors 24 & under) and “Newcomers” (those who have never entered the competition before, of any age).
All competitors must must the necessary qualifications to compete. The competition consists of 5 disciplines that all relate to an operation performed by a forest worker during a working day.
Fitting a new chain, accurately crosscutting a log that is either on the floor or is resting across another log, plus felling a tree and limbing (removing branches). This promotes precision chain saw use within the industry.
