Rule 8 on the Chainsaw List (See Sidebar)

Click Here for the story.  Tree trimmers are notorious for using one hand and reaching way out with a saw.  Both hands need to be on the saw at all times when the chain is running.  Take the left hand off the saw, and a kickback will do its worst on you.  Hang on, and most kickbacks are under control.

Operating a saw one-handed ranks right up with holstering with your finger in the trigger guard.
