Felling heavily leaning trees

Found this technique for felling heavily leaning trees in an Australian book and tried it today on a biggish tree (17" diameter) leaning at 45 degrees. Works a treat. The first time I've bored into a tree with the tip of the chainsaw bar. The tree falls quickly when you make the final cut, but under control with no splitting/barber chairing. Just one more big tree to fell to finish tidying up around the barn - maybe tomorrow, depends on weather.
