Crazy Man Cuts 100 Ft California Palm Tree

A man’s unconventional way of cutting a palm tree in Redlands, California, resulted in him swaying wildly from side to side.

Footage originally posted on Twitter shows an arborist near the top of a severely bending palm tree getting to work with a chainsaw. Once the top of the tree is removed, the trunk rebounds dramatically, taking the arborist on a hair-raising ride.

“It scared me,” the recorder of the video told Storyful, The arborist, however, “was not afraid, because he has been doing that work for a long time.”

Separate video showed the intrepid tree surgeon was able to descend once the trunk stabilized.
