The Game of Logging is a world-recognized training curriculum developed by Swedish logger Soren Eriksson, which combines Scandinavian logging techniques with the latest systems for working safely around trees. The “game” refers to the friendly competitive aspect of the training.
Game of Logging is hands-on. One instructor works with a group of eight to ten participants to ensure that each participant has time to practice the techniques and receive personal feedback.
The entire Game of Logging is broken up into four levels, each with a full day of instruction. The Levels must be taken consecutively.
Level 3 – builds on Levels 1 and 2 and presents techniques on felling difficult trees, including trees with side and back leans. The day also covers limbing and bucking cuts.
Complete course outlines, as well as course requirements, are found on the resource page of the ASA website.
