    Lucky he didn't hit any cars. Really surprises me how many people don't understand physics, look at all the videos of the silos and crap falling on people

    Glad that no one was hurt, the roots looked cut so the tree would fall.

    Idiots like this guy are the reason you should have to be licensed to be an operator.

    It would have taken twenty minutes max to fall that tree with a saw and have it land in the field. There was some wind in the video and a tree that size with a full summer canopy it may have landed in the road even if he used a chain saw. Either way it was entertaining and a good lesson on what not to do with a dozer.:D

    He should have used and excavator so he could have more control or better yet, cut it with a chainsaw and use a wedge if he needed to.

    Any experienced cutter could've fallen that tree any where he wanted it.

    A dozer could have pushed that tree over (and experienced operator), one that was no smaller than a D10, use to like watching the D10's at work shoving over large tree's so they could get down to the rock to drill & blast.

    After this, everyone would have to come around and stand in a circle and talk about emotions and feelings, then bang hardhats and go back to standing around and doing nothing....the American dream ussmileyflag
