Your story reminds me of the time I tried to pull down a dead tree using a chain and a tractor. We tied the chain around the dead tree’s trunk (and this was a huge tree, which was the problem – we were afraid it would fall over like yours did, only instead of landing in an empty area, it would have landed on our house had it fallen in the right direction!). We attached the other end to the tractor and I started driving forward. Well, the chain broke from around the tree trunk, and it whip lashed up and shattered the glass window of the tractor cab, showering me in glass fragments. Yeah, that was not fun at all! After that, we pulled out the trusty chainsaw and axe and took that tree down the old fashioned way. Sometimes, that’s the best way of doing things, I guess!
