Training our volunteers is a big part of what we’re about. We want to help our volunteers to progress and develop and chainsaw training is critical to what we do. Each year we try and run a chainsaw training course to reward our volunteers. To date we’ve managed to help 16 volunteers gain their chainsaw tickets. We pay for an experienced trainer to work for 4 days with the volunteers on a LANTRA chainsaw course. As well as helping people develop it also helps to increase our capacity and to spread the workload!
