How to cut down a tree using a chainsaw safely

Cutting down a tree, or felling a tree, with a chainsaw takes careful planning. It is dangerous and should be left to the professionals. However, if the tree is short and small, you may want to tackle it yourself. Keep safety in mind regardless of the tree size. Watch the following video to learn how to cut down a tree with safety techniques in mind.

It is important that you plan your tree removal carefully. Trees must be felled safely and in the direction that you want them to fall. The most important decision in tree felling is deciding whether there are major obstacles in the area (overhead lines, houses, roads, buildings, nearby tree branches and trunks, etc.). You want the falling tree to hit the ground unobstructed.

Most trees have a natural direction of fall. This is affected by the tree’s lean, the shape of the branches and snow-covered branches. If you are unsure of the tree lean, move a little away from the tree.

To a certain extent, it is possible to force a tree to fall against its natural direction of fall, but this is always at a cost of increasing the risk and of the extra physical exertion needed. It requires knowledge, skills and experience together with the right felling support tools. Trees with weak timber, such as dead or decayed trees, should always be felled in the easiest direction.

Watch our chainsaw training videos series as we guide you on how to notch and hinge a tree for directional felling. Remember, always use chainsaw safety gear like chaps, helmets, hearing and eye protection when operating a chainsaw. Safety first!

As you can readily se, handling a chain sae carries significant risks-- and that's what we manage!
