Chainsaw Basics
A Beyond BOW (Becoming an Outdoors-Woman) Event

Juneau — Getting to know your chainsaw and how it works in an important part of learning how to properly use this power tool. This class will teach you the anatomy of a chainsaw, how to take it apart and put it back together, how to service it and what models are best for what. You'll also learn about limbing, trimming, bucking and felling a tree — all with safety in mind. Our instructors will cover the importance of using the right fuel and oil mixture, how to check the tool before each use, and proper handling. We welcome those 18 and over for this class.
