Yes, a bow saw works best, well second only to a chain saw.

I will have a chain saw with me, so don't worry around a saw if you don't already have one.

Within reason guys. Don't get silly and bring out 24"+ as it is not neccessary. A small bow saw is more than adequate for this job.

So my 084 Big timber feller isn't what I need?!?!?!!?!? it's only got a 60" bar. :lol: zzz


The 026 is a small saw and its what I use in the treefarm to fall tree's. This isn't my first tree cutting down rodeo, cowboy :brow: :-p

What if I borrow a Feller Buncher? I won't even need my subie!!! yay!!!

I'm sure you have done it before. But, I do know how these guys think. So, yes, it was a valid point for others.

Anyone else? We could drive in a pack and take over the world!!....or just drive together.


I think that I am in, at least right now. It's on a Sunday, so I should be available... We should definitely caravan it over there!

I am rockin' a stock subie with snow tires, I should be ok for this, correct? Sounds like a real good time...

Considering all the wind storms we've been having, a few good chainsaws might be good to have with us.
I will bring my bowsaw if someone wants to be more "traditional" for cutting a X-Mas tree ;)
