During the Autumn, we discovered a lot about trees. Our caretaker, Padraic brought in lots of samples of wood and told us how important it is to wear protective clothing when cutting down trees. Today, Padraic was cutting down branches off trees in the pitch. He showed us the protective clothes you should wear: clothes made from woven fabric so that if the chainsaw touches it, the fabric will wrap around the chainsaw and it will stop working, he showed us his steel cap boots, his helmet, goggles and ear muffs and his safety gloves. Padraic told us that it is very important to wear these when chopping down trees as it is a very dangerous job.
