One thing I have learned over the years is that trees do not always fall where you want them to fall. In fact they often fall right where you don't want them to fall. I watched a good friend of mine drop one right on his river house back porch while his wife was sitting there.
He had even wrapped a rope around the tree and was pulling on it with his 601 tractor.
Some how the way the rope was wrapped made the tree twist and fall exactly 90 degrees from where it was intended. Hit the porch dead center and broke 4 rafters. Scared his wife half to death.
I showed up about 30 seconds before it all happened.
The only thing we could do was laugh...
