Hi James, depending on what you are trying to cut, you can either use a traditional hand saw or a reciprocating saw.
Hopefully you will be able to find somewhere local that rents tools. They are fairly common now to do this and some communities even have lending libraries for tools so you can just borrow them when you need them. (where I live in Canada does and it is a fantastic idea!)
Hi James, I agree with the reciprocating saw idea but gosh that's gonna take awhile. Have you considered an electric chainsaw? I have one I purchased on Amazon a couple of years and just love it!
This is the greenworks chainsaw I bought from amazon: https://amzn.to/2STFymn
If you are in fear of the tool itself, get a pole chainsaw. It is a small chain and you are about 5 to 6 feet away from the saw itself. A wood hand saw is the only other option I see and it takes a lot of work.
yeah but not for the big tress
We use our sawzall with the pruning blades.
manual old school saw
Home Depot and Lowes both rent out chain saws, both gas and electric.
If you have big trees to cut and you are unsure on how to cut them down, I would suggest you hire professionals to do this, it is not an easy task and you could get hurt. They are insured so if anything is damaged, they have the coverage to handle it. They do this for a living and are skilled with the equipment.
You might consider getting free estimates for the job.
its a good idea!
Hello. It might depend on your project. Particularly the size of wood you’re wishing wishing to cut. There are many types of manual saw options available in the hardware department.
You'd have to use a manual hand saw.
There's always the alternative to use an axe rather than a chain saw. Here's some help in understanding how to go about using an axe to cut down a tree.
I have always used a bow saw for anything up to 4 inches. For harder wood I use a reciprocating saw (Sawzall).
A bow saw is about $10-$15. A reciprocating saw ranges greatly from $25-$150.
its not suitable for big tree
Suring the World War 2 the " Lumber Jill's" used Double Handed Saws to take down Trees. Two ladies - one each end and working in unison!
Here are some alternative ways to cut wood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhjAqNzVuXU
big hand saw might be a good choice, thanks
I also use a bow or reciprocating saw (with pruning blade). There are also some battery or 120 VAC powered chain saws and other pruning saws available on the market.
you can buy a small chain saw that is on a pole and is light weight it much easier to use
I had a little electric chainsaw I got at Home Depot. It was smaller and much quieter then the standard. Plus a whole lot cheaper too.
A reciprocating saw
Hi James: Are you talking about something not as big? There are smaller ones that are battery operated and seem to be really neat. I'm thinking about getting one. Here's the site to check them out: https://www.homedepot.com/b/Outdoors-Outdoor-Power-Equipment-Chainsaws-Cordless-Chainsaws/10-in/6-in/N-5yc1vZcg4fZ1z1bariZ1z1bavt/Ntk-EnrichedProductInfo/Ntt-chain%2Bsaw?NCNI-5&experienceName=default.
Or, you can use a reciprocating saw, and get blades in the length you need. I have one and like it a lot. The trick to using it is to put the end that the saw blade goes into directly on your project. Otherwise, it jumps around and is hard to manage.
Hope this helped, and good luck
A Japanese saw, not expensive. Easy to use. Cuts a nice fine finish.
If these trees are so large that you'd prefer not to attack them with a chain saw, by yourself, then it's time to call the professionals. Unless you know precisely what you are doing, you can get seriously injured or killed. If other trees are surrounding the one you're cutting, you risk having the tree ricochet off another tree. Cutting a large tree without an experienced buddy is dangerous work.
yes that's perfectly true, that's what I did yesterday. I realized it was not my task to do.
btw thanks buddy
You are most welcome! Glad to know you've contacted professionals!
