Using a chainsaw? Interested in forestry activities?
Improve your skills and safety through the Game of Logging chainsaw safety trainings. These training benefits students, farmers, landowners, weekend warriors or professionals.
The Game of Logging is hands-on training. One instructor works with a group of 8-10 participants to ensure each participant has time to practice the techniques and receive personal feedback. The program is broken into four full days which must be completed consecutively.
5 full scholarships are available for students who commit to completing all four training levels. Scholarships will include a helmet and chaps/safety pants. The cost of the trainings is $150/day for non-scholarship participants.
As part of our mission to support a vibrant future for agriculture in our region, ASA has resources to offer landowners who have land available for sale or lease. ASA is a partner organization of the Hudson Valley Farmlink Network which was established in 2014 by the American Farmland Trust. The goal of the network is to ensure the availability of farmland in the Hudson Valley for the farmers of today and tomorrow. Network organizations offer trainings and one-on-one assistance for farmers and owners of agricultural land.
