Three FBH volunteers, Caleb Blankenship (Milton) and Ben Houston (Rockland) were among the FBH volunteers who attended a two day class this month to learn to safely use a chainsaw so they can better maintain the Blue Hills trails and forests. The training was designed for volunteers who plan on cleaning up trails after major storms. The three volunteers learned basic chainsaw maintenance skills, essential safety equipment and procedures, and proper techniques for safely using chainsaws for removing storm debris from trails.
Friends of the Blue Hills owns and maintains a chainsaw that qualified volunteers use to clear trees from trails after storms.
