The third guy knew which way the tree was going to go by it’s position, but that was scary to watch.
Now I’m no tree hugger by any mean’s because I know that wood is a renewable resource. But It seems a shame to cut down those huge majestic trees.
I understand if it’s due to a necessity but I personally think that if a tree reaches a certain girth it should be spared from the Reapers (literally and figuratively) saw!!
Can’t we get by with the smaller trees.You think you’d be able to react and jump out of the way in time, but how fast that hung tree slipped that man would’ve had zero chance.
I’m still in awe how many sequoia’s they cut down and left us just a scosche of what was originally there.
I get it, was a different time but my god people were probably looking for some huge ass trees to fell.
It is VERY likely many of the actual biggest trees were cut down just to see if they could do it.
Trees so big they look fake.The dude in red in the third clip is lucky. Never seen anyone try to deal with a hung up tree quite like that before.
Eeesh.It’s sad to see these beautiful majestic beasts die and taken down could you imagine what they have been through during their life span.I thought they had massive saws for those huge trees.
Not just using a chain saw. I’m going to have to see if Reg has a video of cutting a big tree down from start to finish.
Reg does a fine job and he does everything very deliberate and we’ll thought out , including watching for the speed of the clouds when he is way high up in the air.
Thank you for this video it could help save some life so they know what not to do I’m just going to leave all my tree work up to the professionals that’s some scary business.
I have never cut down a tree. I have no knowledge of best practices. I will still bet my second born that you dont work with unstable footing, nor do you work under a pertially fell tree. I am confident those are the rules without ever having learned a thing about such work.
