Introduction to Hand Saws

It's amazing what you can do without a chainsaw! This course will cover the basic safety precautions and hazards of hand saw work, different saw tools available (as well as the pros/cons of each), some more advanced techniques (like relieving tension and using wedges), and give a chance to use different types of saws in the field. You will walk away more confident about tackling small downed trees and branches on your own, and better informed on when and how to report larger blowdowns to chainsawyers.  Come prepared with water, snacks, and a personal hand saw if you have one.
