Forestry / Wood / Timber
Norwegian term or phrase: rotvelta
Ved vindfelt skog ligger/står trærne ofte på kryss og tvers med store spenninger.
Det er stor fare for spjæring i stammene straks en begynner å kutte, med dertil ukontrollert arbeidssituasjon.
Kapp aldri av rotstokken så nære rotvelta at det kan være fare for at den kan ramle over deg. La det være igjen en 2-3m lang stokk på rotvelta.
