Sawyer Certification
« on: April 07, 2017, 10:56:55 pm »
I would like to take felling classes, or have some education of which to officially certify me as a feller, or forester. I live in Northern VA, anybody have any idea where or how I could do this? I know the Forest Service offers some Sawyer classes including the S-212, but I'm not really sure where to find those. Thanks.

If I were you I'd contact the DEC (Dept. of Environmental Conservation) or the local Ag Co-Op for starters.  Someone will be able to point you in the right direction.  Maybe even a call to the local college?  Start asking questions, etc.  :)
