Safety First! 

My forest “aha!” moment is this advice from our extension forester: “Safety first!” Safety is key when you work in the forest.

 

Through University of Idaho Extension, about 2001 or 2002, I was taking a class on pruning White Pine to reduce the risk of blister rust infection. Pruning didn’t seem to present many safety hazards, yet our teacher emphasized safety.

 

There are all the things that can go wrong that you didn’t know could go wrong until they do go wrong—and then it is too late.
