“Make the cut” with Arboretum arborist John DelRosso in this practical workshop. John will first emphasize chainsaw operation, maintenance, and safety. He will then demonstrate sawing and felling techniques using practice logs in the Arboretum’s wood recycling area. Bring your saw, if you have one. If you don’t own a saw but intend to purchase one, wait until you’ve attended the class to learn which styles and features are best for your size and needs. Participants should wear work boots and bring safety goggles, gloves, and ear protection. Dress for the outdoors and bring a lunch and beverage. Registrants must sign an Assumption of Risk and Release to participate.

One thought on “Chainsaw Use and Safety

  1. “Make the cut” is a great training for chainsaw handlers. And spending only $75 – $95 is nothing compared to the knowledge that you will learn from John DelRosso. Keep it up John. I hope you can teach a lot of people.
