This is a failed attempt to cut down a dead tree without building damage in out back yard. We have already fixed the barn at a cost of about $150 in materials. The labor and time was paid in Miller Lite Beer. I got to spend some more quality time with my good friend Shannon and my son Nathan did a great job helping him.
My wife Nancy got all of the many 100's of small pieces of the tree picked up and now all I have to do is get my chain saw going to cut up some fire wood. You can see the tree limbs almost explode. Later we found a 4 foot limb inside the building.
I shot most of the video with the Kodak Zi10 and Nathan shot some from the back with the Kodak Zi8. Nathan did all the editing with Final Cut Pro, as always. It all was a lot of fun in the end.
