Chapter 10: Felling a Tree


STIHL recommends two ways to fell a tree: the conventional cut and the open-face cut. When felling a tree, you'll need to evaluate the dynamics of the tree. More people are injured while felling trees than during any other logging activity. Safety must be of utmost priority when approaching a tree to cut. This video walks you through both processes and helps you decide if you can fell the tree yourself or if it should be left to a professional.
