Step #1.......Clear the tree of all Tree People.
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..
Step 2, make sure there isn't a LARGE BRICK WALL in your driving path 5 feet in front of the truck you are using to pull the tree down.
WHere the hell did he think he was gonna drive to get outta the way if he successfully was able to move quick enough..........
ROFL. Made me laugh....

He did exactly what he set out to do....it was just that whole consequences thing that he misunderestimated.
Oh. And the weight of the tree.
I'm thinking his insurance agent will be laughing at him too.
Cut it off and then blow up the stump.
Where was this? The palm tree says tropical, but that still leaves a huge belt of the planet. I cannot identify the accent they speak on the video, either.
The lack of foresight that made that possible is common throughout the third world. (Doing stupid things over and over is one way to stay poor.) What stands out to me is that, when the tree crashed down, destroyed the truck and possibly killed the man, nobody shouted, cursed or screamed. No Americans would have watched that happen in silence. No German would have allowed it to happen. No Russian would have been living near a palm tree.

And I won't be here to see the day
It all dries up and blows away
I'd hang around just to see
But they never had much use for me
