BRANSON, Mo –The City of Branson’s Parks & Recreation Department has been notified that it will be awarded a Community Forestry Cost-share grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation for chainsaw training. Community Forestry Cost-share is designed to assist communities with promoting the benefits of and improving their community forest.
The Community Forestry Cost-share will help the City of Branson by training staff in the safe operation of a chainsaw. This training will help keep Branson’s many forested areas healthy and safe by learning how to properly manage the trees and with staff knowing the safe use of chainsaws, fewer to no injuries related to chainsaw use are expected from trained personnel.
