If you run a chainsaw or work around chainsaws, this demonstration is for you! Carr’s Tree Service will do a shortened demo highlighting the importance of chainsaw safety. For some, this may be a refresher course; however, reminders of the nuances and dangers of running a chainsaw can go a long way toward keeping safety at the forefront of operations.

The demo will include personal protective equipment, proper positioning, and how to make running a chainsaw safer and easier. It will also discuss roadside maintenance and vegetation management do’s and don’ts.

The event is part of the 2021 Minnesota Roadway Maintenance Training and Demo Day Virtual Series.
