Chainsaw Certification Class for Volunteers

On Friday and Saturday, May 5 and 6, the USFS gave a certification/recertification course for our volunteer chainsaw group. Eleven of us spent a day and a half in the classroom, then headed out to the forest for the fun stuff–cutting trees, limbing, and bucking. We got to try out some big saws and hone skills with our little, homeowner saws. Very big thanks to instructors Josh and Josiah for their patience, knowledge, and easy-going style. And thank you to our volunteers who donated their time to be ready to clear trails: Michael, Terry, Jeff, Devin, Jessica, Scott, Renee, Bryson, Davis, and Todd.
