Jesus, that was a close one. That dude must have had to shit his pants when the top of the tree caught the trunk. He would have been catapulted like a shot.
Ya got some bark in your teeth there buddy!
That was one helluva weed there Ernest!
just a shwangen.
Next time he won't tie off the top he cuts off to the trunk he's attached to. If he climbes a tree again.
What a moron, he cut below where he tied it to like arch said. It would have been awsome if it did go down and shoot him like a catapult.
Tying off to the trunk is a technique used to stop the cut piece from falling- maybe onto a house for instance- & it can then be lowered with control. My guess is he's a pro & knew what to expect but DAMN- that's one helluva ride. And I'm sure injury/mortality rates for tree cutters is WAY up there.
you can hear someone yell sorry at the end hahahah
He's gotta to be a little stupid. I had a seventeen year old girl sorting out my trees after a tornado a few weeks back. She did just fine. Your supposed to cut off small pieces and throw them down. This lazy fucker tried to to the whole thing in one go and tied it to his safety harness. Thats stupid.
he must have know what to expect because he is holding tight to the tree before the top part falls.
why cut a tree under some electric cables
