Participants in Level 2 SAWW training will spend time both outside and inside the classroom, practicing techniques to operate chainsaws safely, comfortably, and productively.

Topics covered include: basic chainsaw maintenance, review of the cutter tooth and hands-on sharpening, introduction to wedges, planning and executing tree felling, planning and executing limbing and bucking. Level 2 participants will sharpen their own saws, may fell trees against lean and learn advanced bucking techniques.

Hands-on training gives participants the opportunity to fell or buck at least one tree.
