Tree literally moved sides to attack his running ass

That's actually pretty scary shit. When a tree that big and unsound starts to self-split, there's no way to predict which way the stresses will twist and crack the wood. It might look slow watching a vid, but that guy could easily have been crushed by a quarter ton of lumber in the span of a couple seconds. Smart guy to just release the chainsaw and try to GTFO the instant he realized what was happening, could have been way worse.

He was really lucky that the tree went left, right, and forward, but not backwards.
