This program is designed to cover the basics of safe, effective chainsaw work. We begin by going over the required protective equipment for use in the forestry industry, the critical tools for the trade, and knowledge of the chainsaw itself. Saw maintenance and sharpening are covered as well. The course then teaches the trainee about effective tree-cutting techniques, including notching and cutting, limbing and bucking, all with a strong emphasis on safety.
