Whats around the tree? Is it in a confined area or out in the open? Do you need to drop it in a particular direction? If so, I would call someone with experience and the right saw.

A fella described to me once, the Method that lumberjacks use to fell those huge Pines etc. in the timberlands... I had an old dying Red Oak that must've been over 40" because my 18" bar didn't reach the middle of the tree at all...

I was out in the woods so there was nothing to damage other than myself and the saw... by playing out the strategy of the Method in my mind I was able to bring it down, almost perfectly...

I say "almost" because at the end of the cut I had to add another cut to make it 'spin' into position to fall where I wanted it too...
