About this event

Burning firewood can be an affordable and potentially carbon neutral way to heat your home. However, the vast majority of fuelwood is harvested from clearcuts and even homeowners cutting their own wood can damage forestland. This course will introduce participants to the potential dangers associated with logging while providing a clear and thoughtful approach to safe chainsaw use. The morning will be spent learning essential concepts while the afternoon will take place in woods learning how to develop a safe felling plan with hands on felling practice. The course runs from 9am till 4:00pm. Participants should bring their own lunch and snacks, as well as clothes suited to the weather. It will take place at the Macphail Woods Nature Centre. Registrations can be done online through our booking system or by phone (902)651-2575 or email danielmcrae@macphailwoods.org.
