VIDEO: man cuts tree over 100 feet tall

Scott Augur has a 100 feet tall Douglas Fir with only five inches on either side of it.

His plan is to cut it down but the only issue is that it's between two buildings.

Augur's plan is for the tree to fall between the buildings and thankfully he does. According to Augur it all boils down to expert planning.

“I walked around this thing with a plumb bob. I got back at various angles and looked at it. There was no limb weight to one side or the other. It was just, if you were going to try to shoot a tree between two buildings with five inches of clearance on both sides, this would be the tree to use,” he said.

Augur said he was thankful it worked and that he caught it on camera for his grandchildren to see.
