How "deep" of an elliptical are you going for? If you're only going off square a small amount, then build a sled for the table saw, with a jig to hold the branch at the right angle. You can cut thin pieces and just move the branch a little for the next slice ... very efficient.
I recently learned about table saw sleds on this sight, and I now LOVE mine. Super safe way to get odd cuts on branches.
I use mine to cut thin strips from old branches to make knife handles.
