    Guy just described my whole life

    "It goes on to say that he “kept his sanity” by breaking down each day into hours, and then dividing each hour into five-minute segments."

    The article also killed me when it made it sound like he started a GoFundMe page while stuck out in the woods with his legs trapped under a tree.

    If this or similar ever happens to me I'm using my 2% battery to start a tmb thread to ask for help

    Eh, might not be enough juice. Might just have to post it as a reply in the random internet tits thread that was definitely already loaded.

    My favorite part of the video is trying to figure out how his strategy would possibly have any good outcome however angle it fell at.

    It’s so goddamn tall if it fell the other way it’s hitting the house across the street. If it fell sideways it’s possibly hitting a passing car at worst and making the road unusable for hours at best

    Homeowners should cough up some of that 60k on the grounds of looking at that tree and thinking it'd be fine if they let their lawn guy try to take it down for cheap.

    Guy does a great job on our lawn. Figured he'd do a p decent job on my heart transplant

    Seems like that should be on the homeowner for hiring an uninsured dope to do that job.

    I was always under the impression that if you hired someone that wasn’t bonded you would be responsible for the damage. That’s how it is here. Maybe it’s just state specific:

    there's no way around it. That tree's friggun' huge, imagine cost of having that professionally dealt with gotta be ~$1500-2000. You don't have to know as much as me*, but I'd expect most people who aren't a complete idiot would think there's a reason that's gonna be such an expensive job, and letting Carl have a go at it with his chainsaw for a $200 is not a great idea. Good deal no one got killed.

    There was a story done about it. Home owners weren't home (at work) when it happened. Also that's the neighbor filming it and it apparently happened a year ago and just showed up on tiktok

    I’ve cut down about a dozen pines from around my house on my own.

    Ratchet it in the direction you want it to fall and start cutting on the opposite side at a downward angle. Stop cutting before you hit the end, give it a push, and get the fuck out of the way.

    I would not touch one the size that that lawn guy did, though. Yikes.
