In hand felling, an axe, saw, or chainsaw is used to fell a tree, followed up by limbing, bucking in traditional applications. In the modern commercial logging industry, felling is typically followed by limbing and skidding.
A feller-buncher is a motorized vehicle with an attachment which rapidly cuts and gathers several trees in the process of felling them.
