In the 1960s, Swedish logger Soren Eriksson developed a system of teaching people how to use a chain saw safely and efficiently.
Today Ericksson’s “Game of Logging” technique is taught around the country. It’s a hand-on approach that teaches chain saw use and maintenance and a tree felling technique called “bore cutting.”
On a recent day, VPR’s Steve Zind paid a visit to Bristol to see the Game of Logging being played.
Note: Soren Ericksson’s Game of Logging classes are offered in Vermont by Northeast Woodland Training, Incorporated.
