There are few tools more dangerous than a chainsaw—and yet, so many people don’t know how to stay safe while using one. In this half-day class, Licensed Tree Expert Steve Chisholm will go over the basic safety procedures every chainsaw operator should know, from appropriate clothing and safety gear to proper cutting techniques. Then you’ll go outside and watch a live demonstration of the correct way to cut up pieces of a tree.
There’s limited seating for this class so sign up today!
