CAL OSHA: Tree care operations include the trimming, pruning, felling, and removal of trees and bushes. They involve climbing trees, using portable ladders, working at heights while using hand and portable power tools, working near energized overhead or downed power lines, feeding chippers,
and other hazardous operations.
Tree work accidents can result in severe traumatic injuries and deaths. The most commonly reported causes include falls,
electrical shock, being struck by falling objects, and chain saw lacerations.
