I tend to cheat, use wedges, a long rope to a truck, take limbs off to bias the lean, things like that. Or apply a dose of excavator Yellow if one is handy
Neighbor had a widowmaker that had fallen into another tree, and then had *another* tree lean on that mess. He mowed the lawn under that
I brought the 120 home, unloaded it, snuck into his yard from the side, laid it all down, and reloaded it in about 15 minutes.
A few years before I was helping him prep for a new shop and he had a couple in his front yard he wanted down. Same 120, and I pushed this ~18" hemlock into the target just as I planned. Before the dust settles, this really pissed off squirrel comes out of the wreckage, tells us both off and scrambles out of the yard!!
