November 20 @ 8:00 am – 4:30 pm
Prerequisite: Attendance and completion of Level 1 and Level 2 SAWW training. Participants in Level 3 SAWW training will refine and build upon chainsaw proficiency skills learned in Levels 1 & 2. This course is certified through the Safety and Woods Working (SAWW) training program and is part of a four-level series designed to increase safety and efficiency of chainsaw use.
Participants in Level 3 training will spend most of the day in the field practicing techniques to operate chainsaws safely, comfortably and productively. Topics covered include review of information from Levels 1 & 2, focus on planning and executing difficult tree felling, introduction to Segments, precision at the stump, and planning and executing limbing and bucking. Level 3 participants should be fully equipped and prepared to work with and maintain their own chainsaw. Hands-on training gives participants the opportunity to fell and limb or buck at least one tree.
Participants must be prepared to work and bring their own personal protective equipment, chainsaw(s) and tools for maintenance.
