    embarrassed schuffling from left talon to right … and back to left

    Ex America semper aliquid novi
    [always something odd from America]

    BUT there may be upsides

    —- after polite & suitable pausing for drying, that tree would warm an Eagle’s Eyrie even through a Colorado-Mountain Winter

    AND could the Film be sold for Advertising House Insurance

    That guy knows lumberjack shiiiittttt.

  3. Dan Johanson Says:

    My first question is why cut down this big nice tree? Although it did look like it may have been dying… Secondly, was this guy planning on tearing down his house to rebuild anyway? Yeah I doubt that.. MY goodness, get a prof. tree guy that knows what he doin’!!! And he has a “sorta” smile in the last pic, so I take it nobody was killed.

  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Massa Eagle– Your shuffling always amuses me. Yeah, we have our mutants, as does the UK. Percentage-wise it’s prolly about the same, but we still have more in numbers.

    plane– He’s okay.

    Dan Jo– Bozo got a chainsaw for his birthday and just HAD to use it on something. If it weren’t for the tree, he’d have found the porch.

    Free demolition services?

    “Dear Insurance Company,
    a tree fell on my house. See photo enclosed. Please send check for a million immediately. House full of antiques.
    Don’t Know How It Happened”

  6. Bunk Strutts Says:

    thelit– It was an act of nature, physics and gravity combined. The chainsaw is innocent and just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. As for Doug, well, he’s just a chucklehead.

  7. izaakmak Says:

    It’s a little late now, but perhaps he could’ve benefited from some time reading up on old Mr. Murphy.

  8. Bunk Strutts Says:

    mak– Mr. Murphy, meet Mr. Stoopid.

  9. izaakmak Says:

    Ya know, it occurs to me that Mr. Murphy was laying down on the job here. Shouldn’t the “natural order” require that the tree fall on the idiot himself, regardless of where he stands? But then again, maybe this was just Nature’s way of reclaiming some turf.

  10. Bunk Strutts Says:

    mak– It’s chaos theory in action, with a little help from Mr. Husqvarna.

  11. raincoaster Says:

    Chainsaws don’t kill trees, people do. So you should have to have a license to get a new person.

  12. Bunk Strutts Says:

    rain– Unlicensed bark beetles kill trees, too. So do meerkats.

  13. G Eagle Esq Says:

    UND Meerkats kill Fairies !!!

    UND Vot would Herr Leibniz say :

    Zees ist Vot happens Ven you introduce so many Monads into zee tree-felling population von Amerika

  14. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Schneiden Sie einen Baum und stellen für Sie Anzünden Nachbarn. Schrauben Sie die Erdmännchen.

  15. Bunk Strutts Says:

    I bet GoogleTranslate really screwed with that one.

  16. Dan Johanson Says:

    Erdmännchen töten Bäume, und so groß? Erdmännchen sind die kleinen Jungs, die hohen Stand, während ihre Arme lagen auf der Strecke?

  17. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Exkremente in den Schädel hilft nicht.

    This is planned. Note that, had the tree fallen away from the house, it probably would have landed on the truck (pic 2 & esp. 3). OKay, maybe not, but still truck is parked FAR too close to the opposite direction that the tree actually fell.

    However, look at the size of the wedge cut out of the house-side of the tree. It’s huge and goes just about to the center (pics 3, 4 & 5). That tree landed very precisely where it was intended. Actually an excellent cut. I’d hire that guy any day of the week to drop a tree exactly where he says he could drop it.

  21. roppolo Says:

    Too bad the tree hit that poor house and missed these 2 idiots LOL

  22. Observer Says:

    Please note that their truck was parked in the street the whole time. I think they were intending to drop this on the house. The alternative was to drop it on their truck. Hmmmm.

  23. Andrew Says:

    I’ve never cut a tree down in my life and I wouldn’t consider doing it that way! What the heck were they thinking? Start at the top, trim the side branches and cut sections off the top on your way down. Use guide wires/ropes to pull the top pieces in the direction you need.

    datora & Observer– You may be right. Lemme know if you find the original source for the photos/story and we’ll update the post.

    roppolo– Careful. Your karma just dipped a few points. 😉

  26. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Andrew– My tree felling days were few, but that is how you do it if you’ve got the room to drop it… even if it’s on a few rooms.
