Our first chainsaw training session with Luke Dam was very useful to the participants. Luke is an excellent trainer and he has agreed to do a more “in-depth” session on Sunday morning 12th February next year. The first session was mainly about safety. This one will be a full 3 hours from 9.30AM to 12.30PM and will include the safety aspects again, but also many handy tips around the purchase, ownership and basic maintenance of a saw.
It will not be an accredited course, so there will be no diploma, but you will come away with some very handy information and maybe a few new skills. Even if you have used a saw for decades, as I have, you will still find the course informative.
If you have a saw, please bring it, together with ear protectors, goggles, boots and gloves if you have them. Landcare does have some protective gear if you don’t have any. There will be a small charge for non-Landcare members which will be no more than $20. More information nearer the day but we do need an indication of who will be coming, so please let me know.
