I never had anyone teach me to use a saw, and that idea is great! I
will start to practice that every time I use the saw.
There seems to be a common thread to accidents, they are mostly when
someone was only cutting a limb or clearing a path we have all heard
When your dropping a 36" tree you have respect for that tree and what
it can do, have laid out (at least in your mind) your escape route,
your cutting sequence etc, but just a couple limbs should get the same
respect, because it is the same saw cutting them.
Limbs don't grow back but sweat does wash off, so wear the gear.
PS when I said it hit me in the face, I meant the facesheild on my
woodsman helmet, but it still startled me.
