At the request of the Sawtooth Ranger District, Kent May and Tom Winters, BCHI held a Sawyer Workshop for the Volunteer Trail Crew leaders of the Sawtooth Society with the goal of “B” level USFS chainsaw certification. Rob Adams and Charles Chick from the Squaw Butte Chapter of BCHI ran the workshop on July 14 & 15.

On Wednesday was the field day portion of the workshop. We started the day behind the ranger station in what they call the boneyard. This area had a lot of dead and down trees which Chick and Rob used as cutting problems for the three students Brad, Dalton and Kit. After a couple of hours we shifted the workshop to a local trail that had not been worked in a number of years and the wind gods had pushed down a lot of trees over the trail making it unusable!

As you can see from the following pictures the trail leaders got to work on some interesting cutting problem while working on their “B” level certification and we cleared over 1.5 miles of this trail!
