By using the chainsaw to cut trees or a lot of vegetation the game simply freezes and finishes.

If anyone knows any way around this situation please inform.
(so far I'm avoiding cutting down trees).

I've had this exact issue after the most recent update. Game's been rock solid, but then frozen and eventually crashed while use the chainsaw in mid-cut.

I don't have freezes when cutting down trees but watching my computer's CPU Usage on the other screen does spike up 1 cpu core to 90% when cutting large trees. So trees and removing foliage seems to be a large single-core spike. If your computer's processor is weak or slow for single-core loads then that's probably what's causing this.

Hello everyone,
I'm gonna add my feed back here, because i got the exact same issue.
3 hours of gameplay, unlocked the chainsaw and cut a bunch of tree. At the 7th tree got freeze with the sound still displaying and gotta disconnect session to get back control.

Windows 10 Pro. Fresh installation ( today ). The last time i ran this game it burns my GC (GTX770 R.I.P) (It was my fault but the pike was too stronk)
I waited 6month to buy a new GC and try to play again :
I'm quite low in RAM for the moment 8gb
I got an i5-3570 (upgrade soon) and a GTX1080
Both under 75° during the game session.

Habitually i make report IG but it crashed for the second time, hope details help to fix.
Good luck.
