The word felled or fell means to cause or make something fall by striking. It also means to knock down or cut something. It can also mean to kill. In terms of tailors or seamstresses it means to finish a seam or to sew something after flattening the raw edges. The edges are turned under and then stitched down.

The word felled comes from the Middle English word "fellen" which was taken from the Old English "fellan" or "fyllan".

"The people of the world felled their forests and now very soon their children will pay the consequences". This is an example of how the word felled is used practically. In this sentence it refers to the felling of the trees of the forests.

"Mohammad Ali was the greatest he felled all his opponents, he even told them what round they would fall in." is another example.
