People worldwide have heated with wood for thousands of years. New Englanders are no exception and have long depended on native forests to provide wood for warmth. But set aside old images of the inefficient fireplace and smoking wood stove. New technology has made wood burning appliances a truly modern way to use this traditional fuel.
The Massachusetts Forest Alliance represents and advocates on behalf of forest landowners, industry professionals, businesses, and others who support a strong, sustainable forest economy in the Commonwealth. MFA works on a variety of policy initiatives, including tax programs, property zoning, biomass, roadways, and many more regulations that affect our membership.
Chainsaws are probably the most common tool used by landowners in managing and caring for their woods. Chainsaws, of course, are inherently dangerous and proper maintenance and careful operation are necessary to avoid serious injuries.
What is the greatest risk encountered by those who work in our woods in the warm weather months? Getting hit by a falling tree? Getting attacked by a bear? Getting trampled by a moose? While any of the above could be truly traumatic, such incidents are thankfully quite rare.
