Aug 18, Chainsaws have a suggested range of cutting capacity for felling trees. An inch chainsaw bar can reasonably cut a inch diameter tree, which is roughly twice the chainsaw bar length.
This includes premature breakage, cracking, or even having the trunk collapse during cutting.
Larger chainsaws can do a little bit more at times the diameter. Dec 20, The cutting procedure for felling a tree with chainsaw begins with a “hinge cut” which is a roughly degree cut (30 degrees at the bottom and 60 degrees at the top) made into the side of the tree in the direction you want it to fall. The rule of thumb is to cut it to a depth of anywhere between 1/5th and 1/3rd the diameter of the tree/5(8).
