The procedure works during tree felling

Execution scores occurs in several stages. The first (top) is undercut by a quarter the diameter of the trunk, under the angle 45 °, approach to the tree should be from the fall. Then it is undercut below. It has done horizontally to the point where both undercut connect. After two to file you should have an angle cut in the trunk, the size of 45 °. Not sawing wood completely, otherwise it will be impossible to guess in which direction it will drop the barrel.

Now the course is felling propyl. Before you start, make sure the drop zone there are no people, animals and objects that can be damaged. The felling cut is made from the other side, which is opposite to the intended direction of the fall of the trunk, it must be located at a distance of five centimeters from the bottom of the signature parallel to it.

Carrying out felling propyl leave Nedopil - 1/10the overall diameter of a tree trunk. This is important as it provides the correct trajectory of his fall. If you do not do this propyl, or do less than the specified size, the trajectory of the fall of the tree will be unpredictable.

Immerse saw the barrel slowly. To the bus is not jammed in the barrel, insert the wedge into the main propyl before the tree starts to fall. The wedge must be made of plastic or wood, metal wedge can damage the circuit. The engine speed when operating the saw - max.

While working, watch carefully where the barrel moves. So you can take timely action, if you feel that the fall has gone in the wrong direction.


The arrows indicate the cuts: 1 upper, 2 -Lower, 3 - felling. Nedopilennaya part of the tree is the hinge that prevents the fall in the wrong direction

Two variants of the undercut

Two versions of Signature: in the first case is made signature double right angle, making it more difficult, but the tree is guaranteed to fall in the direction that you have planned, in the second case is made most frequently occurring variant of the signature above

When the trunk begins to fall, quickly remove the saw from the cut, stop the engine and leave the work area. All actions are performed quickly, the delay could be dangerous.
