Re: Mine go all over the place

The safest way would be to have a tree climbing arborist with ropes climb the tree and cut off sections from the top down with a zip wire to lower  the sections. The way he cut it down was skilful, but involved an element of luck. There could have been a gust of wind or the tree might have a defect hidden inside which could cause an unexpected direction of fall. Judging by the sawn bit visible when the tree was hauled  away he knew what he was doing with his chainsaw.
I dropped a tree last week through a similar gap at the edge of my orchard, but I cheated with the use of a steel wire winch to provide a directional pull. I cut almost to the felling point with a classic directional cut then pulled it over with the winch. The difference was the only real risk I might have damaged a couple of fruit trees. They could have been replaced for £40 if damaged.

Lol noy really, just know a friendly Tree Surgeon who takes payment in BBQ'd Spare Ribs and beer. I have about 100 trees  to fell over the next couple of years - many are roadside. It gets expensive if you chop down a tree and it blocks a road.
