Ha, that's nothing. I could have crushed both the shed and the house with that one tree. :lol: :lol:

Wouldn't surprise me if that was real, my Brother had a tree service and it was always right near where he said it was going to go. He used to put stick in the ground and pound it in with a trunk, he rarely missed the stick. He'd never risk something like that though. Guy probably drops trees all day long, He dropped a large hickory next to our house, had a lot more clearance than that. His bigger concern was the bounce and roll afterward. He "hinged" it, there was just enough wood left when it hit the ground it didn't budge from the stump.

That is pretty slick !

A neighbor had an old telephone pole put up as part of a tree fort when their kids were little. Now elderly, they wanted the pole gone. Problem was the only place to drop it was a 5 foot gap between two other trees they didn't want harmed.

After they got home from church they called me to tell me how they surprised they were to see the pole gone and the two trees in fine shape.

I didn't tell them that I used to put up and take down sailboat masts for a living. They never got to see the guide ropes off each side to large stakes driven in the ground. Had it tied off like the shrouds on a sailboat mast so that it could only go where I wanted it to. :D

There's no way I would have tried it with that first tree though. Nylon line can stretch enough to have hit that house or shed ! :D
