i agree this is a great idea.  it is likely a way to get good little
chunkettes without lots of machinery.  slash is a very significant fuel
resource in many places we've found.  in the tropical bush, it is likely the
most important and accessible.

the electric chainsaws have also come a long way.  if your gasifier is part
of a genset making electricity, you could use that to run the chainsaw and
be self contained without need for petrol.

tom, there are many cnc laser cutting services that will cut out parts like
this for you.  the laser makes a near perfectly clean cut, without any
slag.  it is much easier and cleaner than the plasma cutter based systems.

sadly, a cnc laser system costs multiple hundreds of thousands of dollars.
a cnc plasma 15k or so.  maybe someday.  in the interim, there are many
services cropping up that will do small runs for you on their machines.
