Chain Saw Workshop – 2023

May 6 @ 10:00 - 17:00 CDT


Come join us for a hands-on chain saw workshop. We will be learning about chain saw maintenance and have lots of practice on a variety of standing and downed trees. We will also have an Alaskan Saw Mill set up and be making oak boards. Bring your own saw(s) or ask in advance if you need to borrow a saw for the day. This workshop will be taught by Nate Bribois. Nate taught survival with the Air Force in Alaska and is currently a sawyer on Team Rubicon. A variety of saws will be available to try but participants are encouraged to bring your own to take advantage of the maintenance part of the workshop.

Note: All activities are in the field (dress for the weather!). Participants are responsible for their own safety gear (helmet, face shield, chaps, gloves, etc).

Agenda for the day includes:

  • 10:00-10:30 Continental breakfast and orientation
  • 10:30-12:00 Chain saw maintenance and field repair (work on your own saw!)
    • Bars and lubrication
    • Chain selection and sharpening
    • Fuel mixes
    • Carburetors and plugs
    • Transportation and off-season storage
  • 12:00-12:30 light lunch in the field
  • 1:00-3:00 Felling (demo only), limbing, and cutting
  • 3:00-3:15 Snack break in the field
