How not to be a lumberjack.

This guy probably could only get at this tree this way and was going get to safety but shortly after the tree buckled and he dropped the saw. Mill Valley north of SF.

You should watch the video segment.

That guy's either big on ganodes, or short on common sense...but at least he got the job done (I assume).

What exactly is that blue rope doing for him? Maybe his lunchbox is tied to the other end?

I chalk it up to the fact that some of those PG&E linemen are running on about 5 hours sleep in the last week or so...

Goes right along with that safety rope that ain't providing any safety...

Maybe PG&E issues electric saws. :-)

Everybody laughs when it's clear that nobody has been injured. Whew.

He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps, he likes to press wild flowers. He puts on women's clothing, and hangs around in bars.

On a serious note, I'm glad he wasn't hurt. I've felled a lot of trees over the years - a few crazy scenarios - and I respect good arborist techniques. Kind of kills me when I see potential accidents in the making.

That video caused my heart to leap to my throat.

There are reasons we call some windfall trees "widow makers," but that gentleman's techniques is simply suicidal.

I watched the video in slow motion and his line actually does go over a branch above him. But when the big tree breaks and goes down so does alot of other stuff including the branch his line was on. DOH!

Whole thing can be explained by the fact he is 22. Why he would do it and how he would survive.

Really tough job in nasty weather they have there.
