​Class Structure: 

- All classes are taught by a team of skilled & competent working arborists

- The class is held outdoors  (it will be recheduled if rain is heavily forecasted)

- Wear Clothing that you are comfortable getting dirty with grease, oil, & debris 

- Dress for the weather & wear closed toe shoes

If you bring your own saw:

-  You'll get the most out of the class if you also bring an additional new chain that fits your saw

Age & Ability Range:

- Classes are designed for ages 15 and up

- Folks younger than 15 can attend the class with an adult that will help the child follow along in the class (not a "drop off" class for kiddos)

Feel free to treat this as a "drop in & out" event - you certainly do not have to stay the entire time but are encouraged to do so if you're having fun :)
