 Naw, that wouldn't hurt bad......almost instant death!   I sure couldn't do anything stupid like that.....I'd never be able to get to that height.  Now I can do stupid things at ground level however.  :smilewink:

It pays to look twice and cut once.

If you notice, the top of the tree was cabled to the rest of the tree, and the guy hooked the saw to his belt before the tree top fell.

Not sure why this kind of tree topping was needed, but it was well planned and it wasn't his 1st time!

Stupid, yes but it was planned!

I had two white pine trees way too close to the house.  Using a bucket lift I'd trimmed all the branches to about 35 feet.  I finally hired a guy to take them completely down.

 

He used that same method - in a blizzard.  Worked his way down cutting off about 10' at a time.  I didn't go outside to watch but the part of the tree I could see out the window was sure flexing when each piece dropped.  He was clearly getting quite a ride.

 

No way I paid him enough for that job........
