Using a chainsaw is a common enough occurrence but there are skills required that shouldn’t be overlooked. Safety is always critical for operators. When Trent Manning used a chainsaw to fell a huge cottonwood at Settindown Creek Course of Ansley Golf Club in Georgia, his co-worker, Jonathan Morris, took video of the event. Manning sent it to GCSAA for a 5 Minute Fix video. But much of the detail as to setup and safety wasn’t contained therein. In this On Demand, GCSAA team members quizzed Manning about the processes you see and behind-the-scenes info you’ll want to know. Ideas on ways you can use the resulting lumber at your facility round out this half-hour event.
