We thank Jack Shuart, Peter Jensen, the Dodge Foundation, Stihl Northeast, the NJ School of Conservation and our course participants for such a great weekend. Jack and Peter were able to certify 19 new sawyers at the NJ School of Conservation in Sandyston, NJ during the Chainsaw course offered January 26 & 27.
The facilities provided by NJ SOC were comfortable, the safety equipment provided by Stihl kept us injury free, and the Dodge Foundation provided the Trail Conference with a grant that made it all possible. There were ample trees to cut thanks to Sandy and the students braced sub-freezing temperatures all weekend long without complaint. We could not have asked for better students or more knowledgeable and dedicated teachers.
And thank-you, Bill Phillips, for this review on Facebook: “Possibly the best training class I’ve ever taken. The cutting technique demos were excellent.”
