Want to host this session? 
For this session we require an indoor classroom that can accommodate 10 people and has access to a projector and screen. We also require an outdoor woodlot that has vehicle access with trees that can be felled and used to practice cutting techniques (6 - 18 inches or 15cm - 45cm in diameter).  We ask the host facility to provide a Pole saw for the training to review and practice techniques.

Our instructors will need to bring equipment to the location of the practical site, please ensure that there is vehicle access to the location. Woodlots within a 5 minute drive are preferred.
