Wood skidding and other forest works

Forest works also encompass wood skidding which is carried out with adapted agricultural tractors or with forest cableways where the skidding with tractors is not possible. Trained workers are required to carry out these works, namely:

  • forest cableway operator,
  • forest tractor driver

A head of working groups is required for planning, management and supervision and may manage, plan or supervise several consecutive phases in the field of forest exploitation or only individual phases of forest work.

Prior to the implementation of activity, registration is required, whereas prior to the start of works an application must be lodged with the competent forestry inspection.
