and lower cut. The meeting point between the two
sides of the notch is called "directional cut line" This
line must be perfectly horizontal at right angles (90°)
to the felling direction.
The felling cut that provokes the tree fall, is performed
at 3 to 5 cm above the lower part of the directional
felling cut line, finishing at a distance of 1/10 of the
trunk from the notch. Remain on the left hand side of
the tree and cut using the chain pulling method and
the spiked bumper. Check that the tree does not
move in a direction other than that predicted for the
fall. As soon as possible insert a felling lever or
wedge into the cut. The uncut part of the trunk is
called the "hinge", as it is intended to guide the tree
as it falls; in cases where the cuts are not sufficient,
not straight, or have been cut through completely, the

tree fall cannot be controlled (extremely dangerous!).
For this reason the various cuts must be performed
with great precision.
When cutting operations are completed the tree will
begin to fall. Where necessary help tree fall using
wedges or felling levers
Once the tree has been felled, the trunk must be
limbed: in other words, the branches are removed
from the trunk. Do not underestimate this operation
because the large majority of kickback accidents
occur during this stage. For this reason pay close
attention to the position of the bar nose during cutting
operations and always work on the left hand side of
the trunk.
