Bucking and Felling Wedges - Woodworking
The primary use of wedges is for safety. When making a back cut on a tree, a wedge should be put in the cut as soon as there is enough space behind the saw. It can stop a tree from sitting back.

The second use is to prevent pinching when bucking. Again the wedge is driven in as soon as there is space behind the saw. Wedges can be driven in with a mallet, a hammer or the back of an axe.

All three sizes are "spiked" on one face. Spikes are shallow-angled ramps that prevent load pressure from squeezing wedges out. These tough polypropylene wedges have become standard because a chainsaw is not damaged if it accidentally touches one.
