Ok, that is just incredible. I cheered along with him.

Well, it just goes to show you. If a job's not worth doing, it's not worth doing right.

I have seen "a guy" do tricky drops of BIG pines that pretty much landed dead center on the styro coffee cup placed as the "target".
Same guy, 8" dia. tree, cut one that went 180 from the intended fell.
The potential damage was very low and it was a "favor" drop. Of COURSE he's still getting crap for THAT one, but he's still first on the "A" list for potential "Oh, crap" drops.

OK, watched the first one.
I'm fairly sure the hallelujah at the end is in thanks to his higher power in allowing his butt to unpucker after that first... "crick".
You can just tell it's PROBBABLY going to go well just by the way he "places" the wedges...just so.

I've seen loggers fell trees and have been a spectator at a few tree fallings. That first one is as pretty a piece of work as I've ever seen. Some of those Doug Fir will fool you and twist on their way down

The second one, well I guess you get what you pay for.
