Chainsaw Trim and Cut Felled Trees
This course teaches how to safely and efficiently operate and maintain a chainsaw. No more worries when a fallen tree blocks your path. You will learn to assess a fallen tree and see where the compression and tension stresses are. Most importantly, you can then decide whether you will open the track or report it to the authorities. If clearing the tree is beyond your training and abilities, it is always better to be safe than be sorry.
