Felling a Tree


This video tutorial explains the steps to be taken to safely fell a tree using a STIHL Chainsaw. As always, be sure to wear the proper STIHL Chainsaw Protective Apparel while operating your chainsaw. Also be sure to read and fully understand your Instruction Manual, which covers the important items that are specific to your chainsaw’s design, features and operation.

When felling a tree, you'll need to evaluate the dynamics of the tree. More people are injured while felling trees than during any other logging activity. Safety must be of utmost priority when approaching a tree to cut.
