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.
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 !
