From cleaning up after a storm to trimming out-of-control hedges, chainsaws can make quick work of a multitude of landscaping jobs.

In addition to covering essential projects, you will get advice and solutions for: safely operating your chainsaw; purchasing a chainsaw that's right for you; required protective equipment and gear; keeping your chainsaw sharp and running smoothly; and when to call in a professional."@en
