Business Opportunity! If you are interested in working outdoors, making good money with minimal investment, then this workshop is for you. This kind of work is not logging, and no wood is removed from the forest. Small trees are cut simply to make way for more desirable trees to grow.

Here’s what you will learn:

• Why are we doing this?
• Who pays for forest thinning?
• How much can I make?
• Selecting a saw
• Techniques for efficient work
• Safety
• Maintenance of saw and blades
• Try out a saw for yourself!

Hardhats and Safety glasses required (we will have some if you let us know ahead). Ear protection recommended. Bring your own lunch and join discussion after the workshop.
