  • Chainsaw safety on the farm, at home

    Fortunately, our weather has been pretty nice to allow for some yard and farm chores to get taken care of recently. I’ve noticed a lot of land clearing, brush burning, and tree cutting going on in both residential and farm properties. It is a great time for these chores to get taken care of, so it’s no surprise to hear the harmonious buzz of chainsaws echoing through subdivisions and farms throughout the county.
