Want to host this session? 
For this session we require an indoor classroom that can accommodate 10 people and has access to a projector and screen. We also require an outdoor woodlot with trees that can be felled and used to practice cutting techniques (6 - 18 inches or 15cm - 45cm in diameter). We ask the host facility to provide a Pole saw for the training to review and practice techniques.

Please email training@ontarioparksassociation.ca to find out available hosting dates.
