I imagine that felling a monster tree is similar to a Linesman climbing a tall pole.  You fall off of short poles.  No one falls from tall ones.   ;D
The fall don't hurt.

Yep it is the sudden stop at the bottom that will leave a mark ;)  that and all the limbs on the way down, home it wasnt a thorn tree lol...
I'm looking for help all the shrinks have given up on me :o

How big of a wave would it take to put a tree that size on the beach?  Especially lengthwise.

The first picture also looks like it has some limbs left.  Would those limbs survive in the surf?
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

That's a nice tree! Cut some 4" thick slabs, and you'd have most of a wall for a cabin. Of course you'd need some BIG equipment to put them in place.
