Aug 10, In this video, I show you how to cut fallen tree branches with a chainsaw. This is the process that I use to make the branches smaller so that I can properly Author: Helpful DIY. For very large trees, it is recommended to make a bore in the middle of the directional notch. Apply the chainsaw gently with a pulling chain to reduce the risk of kickback. Cut off the central parts of the stump by slowly swinging the guide bar. Now continue with the dual bore and fell the tree using the safe corner method or turn around shrubhauling.barted Reading Time: 7 mins.
Dec 18, Cutting a large tree is much more dangerous than just cutting branches. If the end of the bar catches the wood just so, the saw can kick back and lay open your forehead/chin, etc. Your biggest problem will be keeping the bar from being pinched. Once the pieces settle against the chain, you'll have a hard time getting it shrubhauling.barted Reading Time: 8 mins.
You want to cut above the flat of the notch so that a 'hinge' will be formed and force the tree to fall in the right direction without slipping back. The back cut is cut to leave a hinge of about 10% of the tree's diameter. When the back cut starts to open, you immediately back away from the tree and very closely watch it's movement. Mar 30, Start with sawing off the middle of the hinge so that two corners are saved.
Then cut off the corner on the opposite side from the direction in which you intend to roll down the tree. Cut this corner with repeated saw cuts diagonally from above. Make sure to leave the corner on the same side that you intend to roll down the tree. Sep 30, Just be careful to start your bore cut with the lower quadrant of your bar. Start to cut like you would normally, then pull the tip of the saw to the middle of the log and rotate the handle of the saw up while applying modest pressure at the tip.
While you are rotating the saw up, the tip should be starting to bore into the wood.
