I had a bunch of trees felled on my property yesterday. The owner of the company was very friendly and obviously knew his stuff. He must have told me "safety first" 3 hour later he was waiting to be airlifted for probable broken pelvis/possible broken lower back. 30+ years experience and no major injuries. He misjudged the height of a water oak and it hammered him into the ground like a nail as he was pulling a rope while one of his men felled it. Please be careful!

Chilling indeed, we take down trees pretty regularly for our customers, even though we are mostly a landscape company. Always pays to stay scared, I just past my 30th year running this business, hopefully I won't screw up like that poor fellow.

That's nightmare-level story right there. I'm always in fear that'll happen to me. I hope the guy is recovering as well as possible.
