Whatever saw you use make sure the cut is slightly above the wedge or the tree can sit down on the saw blade. At that point it will want to come backward. For that small tree I would also cut at a slight downward angle. And understand that the upper branches can influence the way the tree falls including twisting. Before starting to cut anything make sure you know where your escape route is and make sure the route is clear. If you are unfamiliar with dropping a tree have a second person in the area observing the operation. That way if something goes not right there will be help available.
