Got some trees to cut down but nervous (or even terrified) of using a Chain Saw? Or, are you ok with the Chain Saw, but less than comfortable felling a tree? No problem, we got you covered.
This class begins with a Chain Saw tutorial. Through a guided, hands-on experience with an emphasis on safety, students will learn the ins and outs of using gas powered and electric saws including, proper operating position, PPE, and saw maintenance including how to change a blade, sharpen teeth, trouble shooting 2-stroke engine starting problems and more. Then students will head out to learn proper tree felling techniques including tree selection, making the cut, using wedges, and when to call in a professional (because some trees you shouldn’t attempt yourself).
This class starts at 149 Hurricane Road and then moves across the street to the Gemmo Forest project to help with land management efforts removing invasive trees. Here students will be working in-the-field to fell trees.
