Join SAWW trainer Luke Saunders, Forester, Adaptive Restoration LLC, for a hands-on training in chainsaw use, maintenance, and technique. Spend time both outside and in the classroom, practicing how to operate chainsaws safely, comfortably, and productively.
This class is part one of a four level series through the Safety and Woods Working (SAWW) training program.
Topics include: personal protective equipment (PPE); body mechanics; chainsaw safety features; the chain and the cutter tooth; reactive forces; planning and executing tree felling, limbing, and bucking; introductory bore cutting and open face felling.
Hands-on training gives participants the opportunity to fell at least one tree. You are encouraged to bring your own equipment and lunch; helmets are mandatory.
