    I'd just say screw it and stay inside.

    Just a note about getting fuel before hand. I would suggest loading up on fuel 3 days before predicted landfall. The day before super storm sandy was supposed to hit here many of the gas stations were out of fuel. People were driving around frantically.

    Despite El Nino they are calling for a near normal Hurricane season. Warmer Ocean. Monsoons in Africa.
    Need chainsaws. Husky or Stihl Bobcat or tractor with a grappler. Dump truck. Chipper shredder with a way to load the chips directly into a truck

    You'll need a place to dump the debris or you'll waste all your time sitting in line at the landfill. Where are you located?

    I am not a rookie but I still learn a lot I work for a lot clearer in the winter and he also is a tree service with me working with him for three winters straight I’m still learning. But to answer your question gets several bars, chains , oil, mix, ect. You need wedges sledge hammer, maul, axe, hand saws ect. You will need bull rope, climbing rope, block and tackle, chains 5/16, winches, come along, rigging rope, You will never see a self respecting arborist use a ladder. It is dangerous as all get out to work off of one with a saw. Do not do it!!! I hate to be that guy in here but in hurricanes people have just lost a lot of there stuff yes insurance pays for it. But don’t be a dick and charge outrageous prices to cut trees and stuff no one likes that guy. Be safe.
