By splungecreek

This is the best information I've ever seen on chainsaw use and felling trees. I have always been amazed at the skill and confidence a good sawman/arborists displays in felling trees. Well, SurefireWoodsman shows you the secrets and common sense methods to felling trees yourself, with a focus on safety, and what's required to get the job done, and just as importantly, what to do when things don't go as planned. I strongly recommend you get his DVD's and share them with family and friends.
