Registration required by contacting Cory Gregg rather than online: or 573-796-0286 ext. 4285 This training is geared towards the ‘do-it-yourself’ landowners interested in managing their woodlots via forest thinning, harvesting, and wildlife habitat improvement projects that require the use of a chainsaw. MDC recognizes the safety hazards that are associated with chainsaw use, and work to ensure the well-being of landowner cooperators who are improving Missouri’s forest, fish, and wildlife resources. Instructor Joe Glenn is nationally known in the field of chainsaw training and competition. He uses the world-recognized “Safety and Woods Worker” (SAWW) training program, which utilizes combined learning environments of the classroom, workshop, and the field, to educate participants in the safest and most efficient techniques for maintaining and operating a chainsaw. The training will place special emphasis on protective equipment, proper saw maintenance, proper sharpening techniques, safe felling techniques for a variety of circumstances as well as bucking and limbing hazards. Required participant materials include: Properly operating chainsaw, chainsaw chaps, leather boots, leather gloves, hearing protection, and eye protection. Cory Gregg
