Timber Skills
Our June 2013 Timber Skills Workshop was a huge success!

This year’s June Timber Skills Workshop began Thursday, June 13th at 6:00 pm and finished up at 1:00 pm on Sunday, June 16th (after a celebratory lunch)! With nearly three full days to learn and practice, even participants who had never touched a chain saw before, left feeling confident that they could safely complete basic chain saw techniques.

Our Timber Skills Workshops are limited to 12 participants (first come, first served) and all applicants must be 18 years of age or older. The cost is $250 per person, covering food (fully catered – yum!), materials, course equipment, and instruction. We welcome applicants of all walks of life – this course is designed for beginner and intermediate users (all genders welcome).
