    OSHA is in the process of considering a tree care safety standard, which would be separate from their current Logging standard (1910.266).

    It would address: "workers who prune, repair, maintain, or remove trees (tree care), or perform on-site support of tree care, such as workers who pick-up and dispose of limbs or branches or use the on-site equipment. . . a potential standard would address the safe use of tools and equipment associated with tree care and on-site support of tree care."

    Those who would like to contribute to the development of this standard, including potential impacts on their business activities, or who would like to follow along with its development might want to visit the relevant website:
