Wear the Right Safety Gear
Safety isn't a throwaway word when it comes to felling trees and running chain saws. You must take it seriously. There are a few absolutely essential safety gear items you need to wear for any chain saw work:
- A logger's helmet to protect you from falling branches, a major cause of logging injuries.
- Earmuffs and a face screen protect your ears and eyes.
- Safety glasses to keep the dust out.
- Kevlar chaps, which will stop a chain instantly should you happen to drop the bar against your leg.
