Hey Jim, when I was taught saw safety it was always stressed that even the most inexperienced can give a safety call on even the most experienced no matter what.
With that said and all due respect to your experience, I care enough to say I wish the teeth of that saw was not right there next to your midsection.
Respectfully,
Don

Don,
Yes, I noticed that too. I'll have to look at my other falling videos to see how they look.

The most dangerous part of falling is at the point that the tree starts to move, hopefully in the intended direction. The faller normally grabs the saw and runs or moves quickly to a safe position and the same time keeping a close eye on everything that is happening. There are some that say and it really makes sense to just leave the saw on the stump and get away without the saw. This eliminates one hazard at this critical time but it is hard to do that because of possible damage to the saw. Really if all goes as it should the saw should be quite safe just laying on the stump as the tree falls.
