Groundie is the perfect book for the beginning tree worker. Part training manual, employee handbook, and even travel guide, this book will walk the reader--step-by-step--through a typical day of production tree work. From the shop to the job site, all the skills necessary to becoming a successful ground worker are covered in detail. Along with a helmet and chaps, this book should be put in the hands of all newly hired ground workers by their employers or crew leaders.

Inside, you will learn detailed information on:

  • Operating and maintaining chain saws
  • Driving techniques to get you safely to the job site
  • Identifying job site hazards and obstacles
  • Installing climbing and rigging lines in the tree
  • Tying the ten “must know knots” for tree work
  • Helping the climber by “running the ropes” and managing the work area
  • Felling, limbing, and bucking up trees
  • Operating a wood chipper
  • Cleaning up a job site
  • And much more
