Warrensburg, NY – Cornell Cooperative Extension will be offering two Game of Logging courses in September.  On Thursday, September 10th the Game of Logging Level 1 course will focus on introducing the participant to open face felling and to develop techniques to safely fall a tree.  Topics include: personal protective equipment, chainsaw safety features, chainsaw reactive forces, bore cutting, pre-planning the fell, and understanding hinge wood strength.

On Friday, September 11th  the Game of Logging Level 2 course will focus on maximizing chainsaw performance through basic maintenance, carburetor setting, and filing techniques.  Liming and bucking techniques will be introduced, springpole cutting is covered and more felling is practiced.

Participants need to bring safety equipment (hard hat/shield; hearing protection; chaps; steel toe boots...), chainsaw and lunch. Both workshops will start at 7:30 am and end around 5:00 pm and will take place at the property of Ed Welch and Donna Trautwein Welch, 105 Dankers Rd., Johnsburg, NY 12843. Rain or Shine.
