Tree felling fail! Amateur lumberjack yells out in fury as 50ft pine crashes down onto house roof
- A man tried to chop down a tree from outside a house in Houston, Texas
- Neighbour caught the moment the man exclaimed as the pine fell the wrong way
- He yelled ‘Oh, God dammit,’ and a string of expletives as the tree hit the house
This is the moment a man chopping down a tree makes a monumental mistake and sends the trunk falling through the roof of a nearby house.
The hapless lumberjack can be heard yelling: ‘Oh, God dammit,’ before launching to a string of expletives at the top of his lungs as the massive pine crashes down on a suburban street in Houston, Texas.
A neighbour caught the disaster on video after becoming concerned that all was not going to end well.
One man can be seen next to the tree as it falls towards the house while another, who appears to be holding a guide rope, runs in the opposite direction in Houston, Texas
But both men had a lucky escape as the tree crashes down onto the nearest house and smashes into the roof
Though due to his ineptitude, the tree could have fallen and crushed him instead
Homeowner Matt Bieniek, who was at work at the time, said: ‘She saw what was happening, and wanted to be ready.’
As viewers on social media marveled at the ineptitude of the tree-fellers, Mr Bieniek explained: ‘We needed the tree cut down and our lawn guy offered to do it for cheap.
‘He did a good job on the lawn so we trusted him. Turns out he’s not so good with trees.’
Unfortunately for the man, he appeared quite unaware of the works of Isaac Newton, who used a period of self isolation during the Black Death to describe the theory of gravity.
The worker had hoped the tree would fall away from the house, though he made a critical mistake when cutting through the trunk.
Instead of removing a wedge shape to encourage the tree to fall in a certain direction, he cut straight through in the hope gravity and a small rope would control the massive trunk.
The video shows the man attempting to pull the tree, which weighed several tonnes, away from the house.
A neighbour said they started filming the felling as they knew what was going to happen
