It was criticized because most folks couldn't fell a Christmas tree within 90 degrees of where they want it to fall, let alone a real tree!! :laughing:

The only possible criticism is an observation that the circumstance of the cut is ideal. Getting the hinge just right did not require overcoming hardship.

Definitely spotted at least one thing they could have done better.

I dropped a 92 ft maple today (measured)

It hit EXACTLY where it was meant to. And it was a leaner to begin with. Had to get it to turn about 30 degrees on the way down so branches would clear. Did that too.

Not so hard....even if I was sweating bullets ;-)

I think the saying applies here: you gotta be good to be lucky and lucky to be good!!

I for one am impressed.
