    SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Terms Cutting = General term for cutting through wood. Limbing = Cutting branches off a felled tree. Splitting = When the object you are cutting breaks off before the cut is complete. There are five important factors you should consider before making a cut: 1 Make sure the cutting equipment will not jam in the cut.

  • Page 20: Tree Felling Technique

    SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS The log is supported at both ends. There is a high risk that the chain will jam. Start by cutting from above (about 1/3 of the way through). Finish by cutting from below so that the two cuts meet. Limbing When limbing thick branches you should use the same approach as for cutting.

    SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Remove any undergrowth from the base of the tree and check the area for obstacles (stones, branches, holes, etc.) so that you have a clear path of retreat when the tree starts to fall. Your path of retreat should be roughly 135 degrees away from the intended felling direction.

  • Page 22: Freeing A Tree That Has Fallen Badly

    SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS We recommend that you use a bar that is longer than the diameter of the tree, so that you can make the felling cut and directional cuts with single cutting strokes. See the Technical data section to find out which lengths of bar are recommended for your saw.
