Chainsaw Training Isle of Man

Through our sister company, Second Nature Ltd, and in partnership with Treevolution Scotland, we are very proud to be able to offer a variety of industry-recognised Lantra chainsaw courses here on the Isle of Man.

Our range of Lantra courses cover chainsaw maintenance and sharpening, handling and cross-cutting logs, and felling trees up to 380mm diameter using eight different types of felling cut.

The courses are very hands-on and can take a complete novice through to being a confident and competent chainsaw operator with a good understanding of safe working practices.

For the more experienced chainsaw operator, or industry professionals wishing to carry out refresh training, the courses can be tailored to work on weaker areas or introduce new skills.

To express interest in a future course with no obligation, or for further information please contact us.
