Hi! I am Drew Finn. I am here from Expert Village.com. We are going to talk about how to prepare firewood. This is presented by Black Dog Video. You can see Black Dog Video on blackdogvideo.biz. Safety equipment for cutting, limbing a tree and cutting it up is generally the same as for felling a tree. What we need are the safety glasses, ear protection, gloves and the chaffs which these are made out of Kevlar so if the chain saw hit him, it will less likely cut open your leg. If you had shorts on or jeans it is going to tear right through it and you may even get injured when the chain is not even running and obviously you want to wear good boots, steel toed even more importantly when your felling the tree because you are cutting pieces of logs off and they can drop down very easily and injure your foot.
