Since there will be no collateral damage when the tree falls it should be easy to cut the tree down. With the tree leaning and all that weight leaning to one side it's certain the tree will fall toward the pasture. You don't even have to notch it, just cut it on the opposite side of the pasture and make sure there is a clear path and run toward the woods when it falls.

Always notch a tree to have some control. Without a notch you have no control. The notch is the most important part of cutting. You can take a high line pole that is standing perfectly level and fell it in any direction you want by notching it.

The only time you need to notch a tree is when it's straight up and you need to direct the direction it's going to fall. On a tree that is leaning that much of an angle it's only going to fall one direction so the notch isn't needed. In fact with that much weight on one side you run the risk of getting the bar stuck in the tree making the notch.

No notch? Which way do you run when it barber chairs and jumps off the stump, before it falls? It'll do that suddenly, while you're cutting it, so it isn't like you can watch it start to fall and move accordingly.

The tree will start to fall long before you cut is all the way through so it won't slip from the stump. I normally have to come back and finish the cut as I'm cutting up the debris. I don't understand how someone could not tell when the tree is starting to fall. It normally makes a lot of noise and you can see the cut you are sawing opening up.
