If you want to cut a tree, then it is important that you use the right techniques and follow the safety precautions because it is potentially dangerous. To fall for a tree, you must take out the surrounding area of ​​trees and trees to ensure that it is a safe way to fall. Again, you will need to make a foothold along the chain with chainsaw or hatchet so that you can control how it falls. If you follow the right steps, then you can safely cut a tree.

Determining the Fall Path

Check with your local government for the necessary permit. Some states and municipalities are required to get permits before cutting trees. Search online for local or state ordinances and be sure to get proper permits before cutting trees.

Wear Safety Goggles, Helmets and Kevlar Chaps. Safety goggles and helmet or hard hat will protect your head and eyes from debris, which is one of the main injuries caused by cutting trees. Kevlar champs will protect your feet from chainsaw grazing.

You can buy all this security gear online or at the hardware store.

Survey the area around the tree for structures. To make sure you look at the area around the tree on the structure or other trees in the area you want to fall in. All things like electricity lines, fences, and roads should be considered before a tree falls. You want to become an area where the tree is free to fall.

If there are so many structures around the tree, then consider hiring professionals instead of doing it yourself.

Cut a tree so that it could fall into another tree and start a potentially dangerous domino effect.

Check the tree for stability and inclination. Ensure that your tree is healthy and free of disease or the cutting process can be unpredictable. Similarly, you want to make sure that the tree is not inclined significantly in a certain direction because then you will not be able to control the direction that falls in it.

Determine the way to fall tree. Fall path should be free of structures, roads and other trees. Ensure that there is enough room to fall on the tree without colliding with anything else. Estimate the height of the tree, then use a tape measure to measure in the area from the base of the tree, which is free from the objects. This will be your fall path.

To control the path of falling, you will cut a foot on the edge of the tree that you want it to fall.

Pick sticks and debris near the tree. When you try to get away from the falling tree, sticks, logs and stones can make you travel. Remove anything from around the tree so you can travel or fall.

Plan a escape route for the fall of the tree. Once you know the area around you, then you can set the path of walking as if the tree is falling. You should never stand in front of or standing in front of the tree. Ensure that there is a clear way to walk and walk at least 15 feet (4.6 meters) towards the tree as well as fall.

Using a Chainsaw

Cut to a notch at an angle of 70 degrees. Decide the direction that you want to drop the tree because it is the tree on which you will cut the footprint. Turn on the chainsaw and carefully cut it into a tree at an angle of 70 degrees. The bottom of the notch should be the lowest part of the cut, while the lower end of the notch will be the deepest area of ​​the cut. Through the Chainsaw tree should not go more than go. The foot of the foot cut should be 1-2 feet (0.30-0.61 meters) from the ground.

Tighten you with both hands so that you have complete control over the chains.

Make a horizontal cut through the tree. Use the Chainsaw and make a clean, horizontal cut based on the number you create. This cut will straighten the bottom of the notch. Do not go ahead with Do through the tree.

Cut a tree from the other side of the tree and make a bore. A bore cut occurs when you insert the tip of the blade in the tree instead of cutting it off the tree. Line up the Chensa blade 1-2 inch (2.5-5.1 cm) away from the edge of the cut cut edge, and push it all the way through the tree. Then, continue to look in the opposite direction until you do a clean horizontal cut from the other end of the tree.

This will weaken the tree, but there will be no reason to fall from it.

Hammer saved from bore cutting. Insert a wood cutting vege in the bore cut made by you and hammer it in 1-2 cm (2.5-5.1 cm) in bore cut. Go to the opposite side of the tree and hammer another nail in the opposite direction of the tree.

Cut through the rest of the bore cut. Place the chainsaw on the opposite end of the emulsion and cut through the remaining wood, which connect the tree together. If you have done everything correctly, then the tree should gradually start falling in the direction of the notch.

Stand down under the tree. You will hear the crack of the tree and see that it will fall towards the notch. As soon as you see it, turn off your chainsaw and follow the pre-determined path already created. Stand at least 15 feet (4.6 meters) away from the tree.

Felling a Tree with a Handsaw

Make a horizontal cut on the side on which you want the tree. Keep teeth of 1-2 feet (0.30-0.61 meters) above the tree roots and make it back and forth to make a horizontal cut. Continue to cut from the tree until you pass through the road.

It can be easy to do with 2-handled saws and an auxiliary.

Hold the saw with 2 hands.

Hochete is a front cut of 70 degrees above the horizontal cut. Once the horizontal cut is done, you can start the charting to make footpaths above the cut. Use both hands and swing a hatchet over your head and at one angle, on the edge of the tree. Continue cutting the tree till you have not made a defined footing, but do not go on the back of the tree’s width.

Looked through the tree on the opposite side of the foothills. Go to the other side of the tree and repeat the pattern, but this time all the steps were seen from tree to foot. As soon as you come near the footpath, get ready to move quickly because the tree will fall.
Get out of the tree as soon as it falls. Quickly walk on that path, which you had cleared before. If you do everything correctly, then the tree will fall in the direction of the notch.
