The Illinois Tree Farm Committee has partnered with the University of Illinois Extension to offer a six-hour beginning-level chainsaw safety training course.  This is for Illinois landowners, homeowners, and college students.

Course goals are to teach a basic competency in the safe operation of chainsaws and to introduce participants to the open-face directional felling method and the five-step felling plan.

Advanced registration and pre-payment is required.  Lunch will be provided.  Registration costs $100 for Tree Farm members and $125 for anyone else, and is limited to 12 participants.

To register or obtain further information such as required equipment, call or write to Bob Wagoner, 2774 Whippoorwill Drive, Charleston, IL  62920, phone (217) 549-0060.

This training will be held at the Rollie and Lois Spaniol Tree Farm - from Charleston, IL, off of Lincoln Highway (Route 16), south on 4th Street to County Road 100 N, turn east for 1.5 miles to farm.
