This site is about safe and efficient working techniques for anyone using a chainsaw at work or at home. All topics are written both for those who are about to use their chainsaw for the first time, but also for you who already use chainsaws and want to update your knowledge in modern working practices.
Learn safe chainsaw use
In many countries, the content on this site is used as training material for forestry schools and courses that teach the practical and safe use of chainsaws. Taking a course of this kind is highly recommended and in some markets a legal requirement before using a chainsaw. Check the laws and regulations in your market. The right knowledge is not only necessary but also vital when you use a chainsaw. No procedure or experience in the world can compensate for poor working techniques. Also, what is considered to be the right working methods might vary in different parts of the world according to law and tradition. Consequently, it is of the utmost importance that users observe local laws regarding chainsaw use.
With a modern chainsaw, approved personal protective equipment and the right knowledge, you have great potential to succeed in your felling work, wherever you may be.
Nature conservation and responsible planning
Nature conservation is a natural part of modern forestry. When planning to fell individual trees or a larger forest area, we need to consider the plants and animals that live in the forest. When we fell trees, we must also think about the people who enjoy the forest, for example hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. Special consideration must be taken when felling near densely populated areas. Those who use the forest must think about it from a longer perspective, over several generations. The forest should continue to provide valuable wood in the future, while sustaining habitats for plants and animals. Planning for felling a stand includes both felling plans and environmental protection plans. Government agencies in many countries set requirements in order to ensure responsible nature conservation when felling trees. Environmental considerations vary between countries and types of forests. Find out which regulations and recommendations apply in your country before you begin felling.
