Event Description

Sawyers and haulers (brush stackers) needed to remove unwanted trees in prairie areas. Loppers and other brush removal equipment will be provided. Haulers do not need prior experience. Sawyers will have to bring their own chainsaw and PPE and must be certified to use a chainsaw on Dane County Park properties. This means having a signed chainsaw waiver and copy of your safety certifications on file with DCP.
