Startled lumberjack discovers you can’t keep a fallen tree down

It’s always a shame when mighty trees are felled by storms. A part of us wishes we could just push the tree back upright and give it a second chance.

Well, that’s exactly what happens in this YouTube video, except in this case, the tree rights itself. It makes sense that the heavy roots would settle back into the soil as the trunk is cut away, but it’s still a pretty unexpected occurrence during a routine cutting job.

It’s also a good reminder that safety is paramount when cutting up large trees. It’s always a good idea to have someone else around in case of trouble.

Unfortunately, despite the determined tree’s lust for life, it looks like it acted too late and will have to be cut all over again.
