Our June 2013 Timber Skills Workshop was a huge success!
This year’s June Timber Skills Workshop began Thursday, June 13th at 6:00 pm and finished up at 1:00 pm on Sunday, June 16th (after a celebratory lunch)! With nearly three full days to learn and practice, even participants who had never touched a chain saw before, left feeling confident that they could safely complete basic chain saw techniques.
Our Timber Skills Workshops are limited to 12 participants (first come, first served) and all applicants must be 18 years of age or older. The cost is $250 per person, covering food (fully catered – yum!), materials, course equipment, and instruction. We welcome applicants of all walks of life – this course is designed for beginner and intermediate users (all genders welcome).

Our 2012 Timber Skills workshop was a huge success! Here are some comments and photos for your enjoyment!
“The Timber Skills workshop was great! Such fun to be surrounded by smart, strong, funny women, and such fun to get a chance to try my hand at chainsawing, which I’d never otherwise have dared to do.” – Maja
“Angela and Bethany were great instructors, who always put safety first. I now have the confidence to run and a maintain a chainsaw. It’s a great feeling.” – Allie
“I had a great overall experience…I’m really happy that the chain saw is now “de-mystified” for me. I know that safety was the top priority of the instructors. I felt safe handling the chain saws and equipment after their instruction…the supportive learning environment was truly magical. I enjoyed this workshop so much and feel like I learned many new skills that I will use. It was a pleasure learning and working with such a neat group of individuals.” – Linda
“The 2012 workshop was so much fun! I loved not being afraid of the chainsaw – and using it to chop down a tree!” – Sarah
