Description: Removal of leaning, broken, and hung up blow downs is a reality of trail maintenance. Traditional methods of cutting section by section are relatively dangerous as the sawyer is under the unstable and often unpredictable tree as the cutting is done. The use of rigging gear removes the operator from the danger area as the tree is pulled down. Rigging gear is light weight; a two person team can carry the necessary gear.
This is not a sawyer certification course or a felling course. No sawing will be done by students.
We will spend a few hours inside going over concepts and gear. Rest of the day will be outside so dress appropriately.
Course will be taught at the Blackburn Trail Center.
