There Can Be Only One: Tree Vs Tractor Operator

June 8, 2017


This is a video of a guy trying to knock over a tree with a tractor, when the tree decides if it's going out, it's gonna take the man with it and tries to fall right on him. Some more information while I reread The Giving Tree and cry my face off.

The footage, captured in Illinois on May 30, shows the branch knocking the man off his machine, right after his colleagues pointed out the danger.

"Our boss couldn't wait for the chainsaw and wouldn't listen when told it was gonna snap," the filmer wrote online.

Well well well -- you just couldn't wait for the chainsaw, could you? And this is what happens when you get sloppy -- you hurt yourself. Also, I like how the guy filming yells 'TRACTOR!' after the accident like it's some sort of special ops military order. That was a nice touch.

Keep going for the vertical video.

Thanks to Anastasia, who agrees there are no shortcuts in life, only dark alleys you can wonder down and get lost.
