Five women gather around a felling demonstration.

The Massachusetts Women Landowner Group (Women on the Land), Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust, North County Land Trust, and the Hubbardston Open Space Committee is offering a two-day chainsaw safety course to build proficiency for beginning women chainsaw users. Work together with a small group of fellow female landowners to learn about personal protective equipment, parts of the saw, methods for handling and starting a saw, and basic cutting techniques. This course is intended for beginners and aimed at women who own and steward land in Massachusetts.
