Game of Logging chainsaw safety courses: Levels 1 & 2.

  • Level 1 (Saturday, May 5, 8am – 4pm) focuses on precision felling techniques and is a pre-requisite for taking Level 2.
  • Level 2 (Sunday, May 6, 8am – 4pm) focuses on maximizing saw performance.

Participants must bring their own chainsaw, PPE, including a safety helmet with face shield, eye and ear protection, and chaps, as well as lunch, water, and snacks for the day. Space is limited to 10 students and registration is available to participants aged 18 and up. Visit https://www.woodlandtraining.com/faq/ for additional information.

$500 / person. Register HERE.

Registration preference is given to those registering for Levels 1 & 2 together: students signing up for only ONE level will be wait-listed. If the classes are not full 7-10 days before class date, we will process the waitlist for single-class registrations.

Participants have the option of camping on the old house-site at no charge.

Cancellation up to 10 days prior to the program will incur a $20 administrative fee. Cancellations made 10 or fewer days prior to the program will not be refunded, unless we are able to fill your spot, in which case you will receive a full refund, less the $20 administrative fee. Refunds will not be issued due to inclement weather. If a program is postponed due to extreme weather (a very rare occurrence), participants are expected to attend the program on the rescheduled date. Should Merck Forest cancel the program due to unforeseen circumstances, and the program is not rescheduled, a full refund will be issued.
