Partially fallen trees are dangerous to deal with, especially if they’ve fallen onto other trees, power lines or near a home.
In cases such as these, it’s best to attempt to clear a fallen tree only if you have the necessary experience, otherwise contacting a professional tree cutter is the safest option, especially if you are unclear of what to do.
The man in this video is dealing with a tree that fell in his friend’s backyard and forgot to factor in the weight of the stump before he starts cutting. As he finishes cutting off the branches, the tree suddenly pops back into its place!
I’m guessing the safer way to have cut this tree probably would have been to have started at the base of the trunk first and then moved on to the branches. I’m glad no one got hurt, but it looks like he’ll now have to figure out how cut the “magic” tree down!
