Some good info on this post, and the bore cutting methods are by way the best for any 'difficult' tree. Being able to set up the hinge before making the felling cut and reducing the chance of barberchair can save you from a power of grief.
Thats a good set of pics on your page there Larry, thanks

One more thing to watch with this method.
Keep the hinge thicker than you usually would. We had a problem with a tree yesterday (it was a heavy leaner again) where the hinge wood actually compressed under the weight and pinched the bar in the cut  >:(
It wasn't a major disaster, we unbolted the powerhead (just so it couldn't get squashed by the falling tree) and cut the holding wood with another saw. Tree fell as expected and the bar and chain were left sitting on the stump. :)

That musta been a pretty big tree.  Or just a soft type of wood?
Senior Member?  That's funny.
