Arborist Goes On Wild Ride After Cutting Head From Leaning Palm Tree
This guy already is ballsier than anyone I've seen doing tree work, as far as he's like 40 feet up a straight pole.
Palm trees really don't grow much on them other than the very top, so when trimming, it doesn't take a lot to cut the majority of the tree's weight at once.
It's all fun and games until you've got to cut the bend off the tree when it's out of reach of the bucket.
As soon as he cuts the head of the tree off, the trunk is relieved of all the weight causing it to bend, so it just snaps right back up straight, only our arborist is still on it.
Kudos to him for holding on as tight as he did, rather than being catapulted two streets away.
