You can probably see what’s coming in this video right from the start, but like a natural disaster, you just can’t stop watching as this tree comes crashing down.

In all fairness, this is one devilish tree that never seemed to cooperate even from the very beginning. The guy starts by cutting out a wedge of the tree on the side he wants it to fall on. All is going well, until the tree decides to be stubborn.

With a good chunk missing on one side, the guy starts pounding away with a sledge hammer and the tree starts to split up the middle of the trunk, but still stands firm.

At the 3:00 mark, you can see this man has had enough of this tree and decides to just go for it, but his knee jerk reaction and the result it produces isn’t pretty:

    What a maron all you have to do is look at the top of that tree and you can tell it’s not going in the direction of his wedge without a cable pulling it that way before he started cutting

    The guy didn’t set the cut up correctly and he clearly failed to take the natural lean on the tree into account. Wow, as Bug’s Bunny would say, “What a moroon (sic).”

    Everyone else and that video knew the tree was going to fall the wrong way except the guy cutting the tree.
