How-To's & Guides

Felling trees greater than twice the guide bar length

When felling larger trees you need to follow a slightly different felling technique.

  1. Make a bore in the middle of the directional notch. Start by applying the saw gently with a pulling chain to avoid kickback. Cut off the central parts of the stump by swinging the guide bar.
  2. Now continue with the dual bore and fell the tree using the safe corner method or turn around method.

Note: Increase the hinge thickness as you have reduced the overall hinge length by making a bore.
