If they're yours, don't ask questions.  ;D  Sorry for not giving any more appropriate advise.  Hiickcks.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Most generally the rule of gravity will make them fall down, not up, and you will be on the "down" side of the equation. 

Third apology for the smart response... :D

You will probably need to provide more info. Number of trees, from a yard or farm. Would suggest you start with contacting the Canadian equivalent of a county forester if they have such a thing in Canada. If on a farm you might want to call it "pasture improvement" instead of a logging job.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

On my land in Maine there is an intent to harvest form that I need to cut and sell logs. It's very simple to get. I need the harvest number to sell logs to a sawmill and the number for pulp. I have no idea about Canada. Just saying it "should" be easy.

Most pine stands in Ontario are cut using the uniform shelterwood system with selection used in some places as need be.  I tree marked pine for years. PM me if you like.

if there in Cobalt your a ways north, you should check with your county and see if any by-law on cutting pine . Just south of this place we cut a lot of pine and the govt had a tax type of thing that the land owner did not own the right to white pine , You had to buy the stumpage from the govt

God bless being in a free country that's a load of bs if you have to buy the stumpage on your own ground.

its the same with mineral rights , just because you got gold on your land does not mean you own it

Land ownership means you get to use the land - if you pay the property tax.
Mineral rights belong to the guy that pays for them (diamonds or oil).
A landowner also doesn't own the water that flows in the river that runs through his property. He can use it, but the guy watering his cattle downstream can use it too.

The OP was asking a good question - he's coming up to speed on the long standing laws (Canada or the USA) of resource use.

I always thought the government has mineral rights for what ever is under  the top soil. What ever you grow on top of it on private land is yours. Somebody please correct me if I am wrong.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Are you talking about private land or crown land ?

In Ontario on some but not all private land the Crown (Government  of Ontario) retains the right to the Pine (Red , White  or Jack pine) . You have to check your property deed as to whether or not you can cut the pine on your land without paying the stumpage charges.
The hold on the pine predates Confederation and it was for naval stores for the British Navy the politicians kept it on the books as a revenue stream.
You are allowed to harvest pine for your own use on your property that the pine is growing on. You can also apply to buy the pine rights back from the government and have he hold on the pine removed from your deed.

 By Thunder Bay Ontario there is a river called the Kaministiquia River, I was told that back in the old days that all the white pine for 5 miles on either side of the river was claimed for the queen to be used for ship masts in the royal navy.
  Dragging a white pine 5 miles to get it to the river in this country would have been a rough go.

Well hey, anything for the queen right? 

My wife would be just fine with me lugging her a ship mast 5 miles on my back.  Wouldnt even glance away from the phone!
