Did you know North Carolina has an average of 4,400 wildfires per year? In this workshop we will look at practical uses for chainsaw skills through the lens of wildfire mitigation around the home.  

This course is designed to provide a safe and welcoming learning environment for women who are new to chainsaw use. While most participants have little or no experience with a chainsaw, this course is also an effective refresher for more experienced individuals who may want to brush up on good safety habits with a saw. This is a gateway course and will provide you with a foundational introduction to support you in pursuing further chainsaw training.

  • 9:00 am – Indoor training 
  • 12:00 pm – Lunch (provided) 
  • 1:00 pm – Field training 
  • 4:00 pm – Wrap up 

This course is intended for women-identifying individuals, though all are welcome to attend. We strive to foster a safe and supportive learning environment and ask that all participants respect that.
