Get to Know Your Chainsaw - Dana Greenhouses - Class

Saturday, April 27, 2019

John DelRosso, Head Arborist, Arnold Arboretum

Location: Dana Greenhouses Classroom

Before using a chainsaw, it is best to understand all of its parts, built-in safety features, maintenance requirements, and the forces in play once you rev its small but powerful engine. If you own a saw, bring it to class. 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 bring safety goggles, gloves, and ear protection. Dress for the outdoors and bring a snack and beverage.

This class is designed for beginners or those who have never taken a formal class on chainsaw safety. John will instruct on the way to handle a saw safely, how best to lessen fatigue so as to avoid accidents and injuries, and how to sharpen a saw. Participants will not practice felling trees.

Registrants must sign an Assumption of Risk and Release to participate.
