Tie a rope to a weight. Toss the rope high in the tree and pull to b sure it is caught tight. Tie the bottom of the rope to a vehicle and tighten in the direction u want the tree 2 fall. Cut the tree trunk with a sawsall or chainsaw. No saw? Ask a friend or neighbor. Save the rope for future use. U can also cut the branches on your side then if it falls it will fall away from u. Good luck.
