Savageactor, why don't you use that front end loader to get that other tree down? Or simply chain the tree and pull it down with the tractor. Actually, those aren't that dangerous and very easy to take down with the chain saw. If it were a big tree, then for sure I'd hesitate, but that little thing would be a piece of cake. What I do is cut on top, but you have to be very careful to not let the saw pinch. Watch the crack and as it shows the least sign of coming together, get that saw out fast. Then simply undercut and it will fall. As to where to make the cut, I usually cut at about waist height but like to cut 4 feet lengths, which gives 3 firewood logs when finished. The only caution to make is to watch the rest of the tree. You should be able to tell what it will do just by studying how the tree is held at the top. Also, is the butt end jammed into the ground? If so, that means there is hard pressure against the butt and when you make that final cut, the rest of the tree is going to want to come down too and will do so fast. That is why I caution about doing this on larger trees unless you've had some experience. As a one-time logger I used to do this sort of thing daily on big stuff and have never came close to an accident. However, I have heard of some, so be careful. And if you are not comfortable doing it, then simply leaving it is still best. Hope that made sense.
