The Delaware Highlands Conservancy, in partnership with the Northern Tier Hardwood Association, is offering a Women’s Chainsaw Safety Class in Lake Ariel, PA on Saturday, May 15.
The all-day class will be taught by a certified Game of Logging instructor in partnership with the Northern Tier Hardwood Association and will focus on introducing participants to open-face felling and the development of techniques to safely use it. The topics covered will include personal protective equipment, chainsaw safety features, chainsaw reactive forces, bore cutting, pre-planning the fell, and understanding hinge wood strength. Participants will each get hands-on experience for felling trees.
Prior registration is required, as space is very limited. Registration is $10 for Conservancy members or Women and Their Woods graduates; non-members are $20 each. Registration the day-of begins at 7:30am and the class will run until 4pm. Click here for more details and to register for the Women’s Chainsaw Safety class.
