Since last week’s major storm up in Northern Michigan, tree clean-up is the task at hand for a great many of residents.  Obviously, caution is paramount when operating a chainsaw.  Kickback is the most common and seriously harmful consequence of either inexperienced or careless operation.   Understanding the correct way to operate a chainsaw and avoid kickbacks is relatively straightforward.  If resources permit, it is advisable to hire expert tree service companies to clear fallen trees and debris; there are multiple reputable and local tree service companies here in Northern Michigan permitting you to “keep it local” too.
