Chainsaw Use Workshop!

Our first weekend workshop is almost upon us, have you registered?! 

Don't cut off your toe to fill your woodbox; join us at the Harrison Lewis Centre Aug 18-20 for two days of learning how to operate a chainsaw properly and SAFELY. 

This hands-on course with certified instructor Patrick Allan covers all aspects of basic maintenance and safe use of this powerful tool. Saturday morning focuses on the saw’s engine, how it works and how to keep it tuned for top performance. Chain sharpening gets plenty of attention. Next the class moves outdoors to practice limbing, bucking, and notching in preparation for felling. Sunday participants move into the Harrison Lewis Centre’s woodlot where they learn-by-doing to drop trees where they want them to fall, plus the dos and don’ts of working with both downed and standing wood.

You must bring your own chainsaw boots. All other safety gear can be provided. You are welcomed to bring your own saw, if you have one, as well as any of your own protective clothing, etc.

Maximum of eight participants!
