  • Chainsaws are a useful tool to help clean up our trees after this icy winter we have experienced, but they are also powerful tools, making them very dangerous.

    Improper use can cause serious and fatal injuries.  If you use a chainsaw, follow these three safety guidelines:

    • Know how to properly use a chainsaw

    • Wear personal protective equipment to protect eyes, hearing, head, legs and feet

    • Never work alone

    Buy a chainsaw you can comfortably handle and that is appropriate for the tasks you do most often.

  • Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair, and we want to blame God for our problems. But Matthew 5:45 states, “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
