If you’ve never operated a chain saw, then you must obtain training. Cutting down trees is very dangerous. Even when a tree has fallen, it can have stored energy that can cause the tree to roll or move in such a way to cause the saw to bind or the tree to fall on you.

Chain saws used all day in the field require sharpening. If you use a handy special tool, you can field dress a chain in about ten minutes.
