Which chain and chainsaw to use?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I have a tree in my back garden and it needs removing. The tree unfortunately leans over into our next door neighbors house/garden, It's quite a large tree about 20ft tall and the trunk is about 4ft wide, In the bad winds and rains when the branches fall they all go into the neighbors garden braking there ornaments becoming quite the headache. Anyway i need some info on what kind of chain i need and what chainsaw and if you know where there are and chainsaws for sale shop's/site's would be great

The image below is an example of what is in my garden, i will have to get one of the kids to get a picture of my actual tree up asap.


Thanks everyone

if the trunk is 4ft wide, two decent chainsaws are going to cost as much as getting the job done professionally, not to mention the cost of repairing any damage done from inexperience.

A tree of that size (depending on the distance to drag the brash) would cost you around £200 if you called a tree surgeon in to remove. No plants or fences will be damaged all brash will be chipped and taken from the site, the work area will be left spotless and perhaps more importantly no ladder will be used and you won't end up in A&E with broken and and leg resulting in 3 months loss of earnings :001_smile:

Nobody else suspect that this may be a wind up? Or am I the dullard for mentioning it and spoiling the joke?
