A chainsaw (or chain saw) is a portable mechanical, motorize saw. It is most commonly used in logging activities such as felling, limbing, and bucking; by tree surgeons to fell trees and remove branches and foliage; to fell snags and assist in cutting firebreaks in wildland fire suppression, and to harvest firewood. Chainsaws with specially designed blades have been developed as tools for use in chainsaw art.
