An arborist's leg has been severed after a length of rope, which was wrapped around his leg, was caught in a woodchipper, north-west of Sydney.

A 51-year-old man was cutting down a tree at a Wilberforce property in the Hawkesbury area about 11:00am on Monday.

A loose rope coiled near his leg became tangled in a woodchipper some metres away, pulling the tension tightly enough to sever his leg.

The force in which the rope was pulled into the machine sent the man's detached leg "flying into the air" according to CareFlight's response team.

Calf roping , also known as tie-down roping , is a rodeo event that features a calf and a rider mounted on a horse. The goal of this timed event is for the rider to catch the calf by throwing a loop of rope from a lariat around its neck, dismount from the horse, run to the calf

The man suffered significant blood loss but first responders said the quick first aid of his colleagues helped him in the immediate aftermath.

"The moment the leg went flying through the air, the quick actions of others meant they were able to grab and preserve it," a CareFlight spokeswoman said.

NSW Police officers arrived on the scene and tied a tourniquet around the man's bleeding leg, which "significantly increased his chances of survival", the spokeswoman said.

CareFlight's doctor and NSW Ambulance's paramedics treated the man in preparation for his transportation to Westmead Hospital, some 35 kilometres away.

On the ambulance ride to the hospital, medical experts performed a blood and plasma transfusion on the man.

Paramedics also stopped to buy ice from a petrol station to preserve the man's severed leg during the 40-minute drive.

The man is in a stable condition at the hospital, the spokeswoman confirmed.

"Without the quick actions of the bystanders, including the police, ambulance response, and CareFlight rapid response helicopter response, the man's condition could be much worse," the spokeswoman said.
