7.3 Work Methodically
  • Work in small groups, spread out along the marked route, and work carefully from one marker to the next. If everyone works in the same spot, there is more risk of injury.

  • Emphasize thorough work, not speed, even if this means coming back to finish the job.

  • In open areas with dense undergrowth, clear the trail route of shrubs before cutting large trees. This allows for safe and easy movement when felling and limbing trees.

  • Avoid disposing of debris in a haphazard manner. Make use of it.
