I’ve been managing our woodlot for forty years and have learned a lot about cutting. It’s not a task for the irrational and it helps to understand a little physics, tree structure and your own physical limitations.
Chaps are essential along with eyes and ears. The 45 degree exit path is essential and it’s good to have both of them clear. Your commentary on ladders is good.
I kept a damaged 8′ step ladder just to remind myself to never go up a ladder with a chainsaw again. Dead standing trees are good pre-dried firewood but they also want to kill you.
Depending on the species they can rot near the top which comes back at you when the tree falls away from you. Ash trees are good barber chair candidates especially if they have indication of dying or rot near the bottom.
Never do I start a tree project without a second saw nearby and make sure the backup saw is not a wimpy one.
I enjoyed the entire video.I don’t cut professionally and only have a couple big, hardwood trees under my belt, so I know nothing about cutting compared to my knowledge of the saw itself.

I’ve watched both of your tree felling videos and wanted to say thank you! I didn’t realize the importance of a clean wedge, and had NO IDEA about making the back cut higher than the horizontal of the wedge cut.

I used what I learned on two small trees yesterday. One 5″ diameter and 30′ high, the other 8″ and 40′. Both were 7-10′ from my cottage and had 80% of branches hanging on the cottage side.
Used a rope with simply hand tension and they fell exactly where I wanted!
The “best” part of your videos is your willingness to show your mistakes, such as when you were not happy with the results of your first attempt to cut the wedge from the base of the tree.

Taking time to explain why you were not happy with those results was actually much more informative than if you had made the first cuts exactly right and then moved on to the next step.
