Part 34 Forestry

Section 523 Partially cut trees

A tree that has had its branches removed can be left standing. Once the trunk of a tree has been cut however, the tree must be felled. This eliminates the possibility of the tree falling over at some later time. A tree left standing with a cut in its trunk poses a danger to workers.
