How do you chainsaw a large tree?

Make a top cut into the trunk of the tree at about a 60 degree angle, sawing to a depth of about 20 - 25% of the tree's diameter. Make a horizontal undercut that meets the top cut. You should now have a notch carved out of the side of the tree facing the felling direction.
