Get To The Choppa: Harvesting X-Mas Trees w/ Helicopter

December 10, 2013


This is a video of helicopter pilot Dan Clark showing just how fast he can pick up felled Christmas trees and throw them in the back of a truck in Oregon. He's pretty quick. I'm not sure how I'd feel about being the guy that has to hook up the next tree to Dan's cable. Also, I had no idea they even used helicopters for Christmas tree harvesting. I would have guessed it was all-- "Illegal immigrants?" Okay I was going to say robots.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Swinglow (sweet chariot?!) and Jason, who harvest Christmas trees with nothing but explosives, so there.

    something is wrong with the perspective when the chopper goes to the right side of the screen. Trucks strike me as models for some reason. It's the way the entire video sits together. Great work _either way_ What's the hurry to load those trees up?..avalanche on the way?
