Some people start by cutting the main cola first, then cut all branches, form a pile, then trim.
Others say cut the entire trunk at the bottom first and hang the plant up to dry before trimming. They said this method increases potency by gravity pulling things down into the buds.
I'm sure the second method would probably make the drying longer and trimming more difficult.
Another idea is to cut the trunk at the bottom, hang the entire plant upside down, then begin removing branches, trimming, and hanging to dry, one by one. Kind of a mix between the first two.
Does any of this make a difference
