Dane County Chapter – Savanna Clearing, Restoration
December 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
We will be cutting invasive brush and trees with chainsaws and hand tools, treating stumps and burning brush piles. If you are a certified sawyer (chainsaw) and own personal protective equipment (PPE), please bring both. If you’re not certified to operate a chainsaw, but own PPE, you may bring it so you can work in tandem with a certified sawyer.
Please bring work gloves and wear long sleeves to protect against the brush. If you need work gloves or protective eye glasses, let me know. If you like the warmth of a fire, you should be wearing wool or cotton as an outer layer. Fleece and synthetics will melt as a spark hit them. A sweatshirt on top of these will provide good protection..
If you plan to stay all day, please bring drinking water and some lunch. I will provide some food/drinks to share for lunch, including brats to cook on the fire.
Feel free to come if you can stay only part of the day. Please RSVP so I have enough tools with me.
