    The saw is being pinched by the branch. Use a jack to take the weight off the branch and the cut will open up, freeing the saw.

    Next time, use an undercut before trying to saw through from the top.

    Get out your tractor and put a chain around the loader and the tree limb and pull up. The pinch will open up and the saw will be unstuck. Be careful how you cut a tree so that you don't pinch the chainsaw. If you have to make a cut that will pinch, stop and drive a wedge into the cut and keep the cut open. Be careful because you are involved in heavy things kicking and you can get hurt.

    Use an axe or hatchet to remove the wood trapping the chain saw.

    A GREEN branch can be bent enough for the saw to FALL out.

    Have someone stand on the branch past the cut. Then rock the saw out without starting it..

    Use a wedge or use an axe like a wedge to open the cut that is seizing on your saw blade.
