Excerpt from "Backcut requirements for Humboldt cutting.[1910.266(h)(2)(vii)]"
In your letter, you raise concerns about certain tree felling provisions in the rule, namely the provision that requires backcuts to be above the level of the horizontal facecut in Humboldt cutting operations [29 CFR 1910.266(h)(2)(vii)]. Specifically, you raise concerns that the rule was promulgated without input from timber fallers, and that the backcut provision came from the east coast and does not work in Montana or Idaho.
