That is a very good reason to bring a chain saw. Especially since we generally camp in National Forest CGs.

I just recently bought a lithium battery powered chain saw. I mainly bought it because I have had a lithium battery powered blower now for a couple years and really like it. From now on I will bring both my battery powered blower and chainsaw with me camping.

My blower is an EgoPower. It has a 56 volt 2.5:Ah battery
My chainsaw is a Greenworks with a 40 volt 4.0 Ah battery.

I recently brought a chainsaw to a National Forest campground near Aspen, CO. Turns out an avalanche went through part of the campground this past winter. They were happy for the help.

In B.C, on the west coast specifically, downed trees are protected and tagged with notes telling people not to chop them up. The downed trees become nurse trees for seedlings, giving the seedlings vital nutrients for growth. Downed trees also give a multitude of animals, new cover and habitat.

While I have never felt the need to carry a chain saw and don't plan to start now and we all know the restrictions regarding cutting wood on most all public lands I seriously doubt that cutting to clear a road falls into the "Illegal" category. If I need to, and had one, I wouldn't hesitate to use it for that purpose. Now we just might run afoul of the park maintenance workers UNION for working out of job classification but we can deal with that later.

Chain and Cross-cut NFS Saw Policy

https://www.fs.fed.us/about-agency/r...ies/saw-policy

If you have the time... the National Forest Service may have an answer... but vague for Private Citizens, who may want to assist in cleaning NFS or BLM campsites and trails being... as NFS Cooperators.

I discovered, as one State Employee of a group writing Rules and Regulations for a State's OSHA Bill, the details can be massive... using references. Much like the Forest Service's: FSM 1580.5 and FSH 1509.11 section 91.2 adding reams of additional Rules and Regulations. (Defining a Cooperator with Question 4 on the above website.)

Chain saw injuries are the most 'wicked' a doctor will try to fix. One glance and the physician knows what happened. I never investigated an actual lumber man injuring himself with a chainsaw. Those I did... were 'cut tree hangers', one or more trees cut and hung up in standing timber... later to fall down and crush the chainsaw operator.

A chainsaw is wonderful tool in experienced hands. If you are a newbie... it can detach a limb... alright... your hand and foot in less than a second. Take a class or have an experienced operator show you how to SAFELY operate a chainsaw. A limb is a terrible thing to lose... yours, not that scrub oak being trimmed.
