What I need from you guys is two things:

1. Will this approach work?
2. What type of chain saw should I purchase? (keep in mind I've never used one before).
I have a Husqvarna saw but there are many good brands that are cheaper.
Since you stated that you have never used a chainsaw, May I give a little advise?
Chainsaws are VERY dangerous tools if used carlessly. The best advise I have ever received concerning a chainsaw, was----Assuming you are right handed, every time you use the saw, "lock" your left elbow and keep it locked while cutting. Many times, a saw would kick back and the saw would go up away from me because of the locked elbow.

I was reading this article on chain saws : http://www.articlesbase.com/gardenin...ers-72593.html

And thats exactly what I want to avoid

One of the biggest mistakes chainsaw newbies make is mis-judging the type of machine they're actually after. Time and time again a first time chainsaw buyer will make the mistake of either buying too powerful or too ineffective a machine. Here's a good point to rememberů ask an expert exactly what saw work you require and how frequently you are likely to use a chainsaw. This will give you a good starting point and in most cases, you'll get your answer very quickly.
Safety issues arise when inexperienced cutters attempt to use bigger, more powerful machines without an understanding of the hazards involved.
So my question is, what is the right saw for me? (know what I have to cut)
