    Look at this guy "helping" a neighbor removing a trunk.
    I don't make fun of him - he does that himself.

    8:14 "butter-cup undercut" :clap:
    9:17 "direction lottery" hinges :wtf:

    I love when anyone says 'hope it comes this way'. That's how you can tell the quality fellers from the amateurs.

    Had a very large oak that was a slight leaner over my buddies new house, nothing a wedge couldn't handle...he calls me and goes 'You cut tree's right?' Yeah. You want to take one down for me? Sure.

    Got everything looking like I really know what I'm doing...then as I'm about to start the undercut I look at him, look up, look at him and go...damn, this is a pretty big tree for my first one...hope those guys on YouTube were right...and start the saw lol

    Hmmm. Interesting. I'm confused about all of the notching and hinging.. it seems to me that with a couple of wedges, he could have just bucked that entire trunk into logs from the top down easier than trying to "fell" it twice.. of course I am an electrician, so don't take my opinion as advise in any form.... Am I wrong for thinking this way?

    Anyone with half a brain would have had that tree down in a quarter of the time it took him to do it.

    Anyone with any prior experience would have had it down in a sixteenth.

    To me professional means you're getting paid to do a job, it has nothing to do with how well you can do the job, if you excel in your field you're an expert.
    It's obvious he's neither, unless he got paid to do the job lol.
