What NOT to do with a hung up tree

On my chainsaw training I learnt that there are several things you don't do with a hung up tree:

  • walk under it
  • climb up it
  • cut bits off the bottom of it
  • fell the tree it's leaning on
  • leave it unattended
You can see how we dealt with a hung up tree in another post here, using a winch and a pole.

So you can imagine my horror watching this video I came across on YouTube, which I must stress, did NOT happen in our wood, and I don't know the people involved, who thankfully didn't get hurt:

The original video is here:
