For anyone interested in tree felling he did a shit job. The tree was hollowed out meaning it was dead -- carpenter ants are the most likely cause. To fell a dead tree you can either use a drill at as many levels as possible from the cut height or you simply peel off bark. He notched it (you can see the triangle on the opposite side he is cutting) which works okay for smaller trees that already have a tilt that way. A tree that size should be 'wedged (chainsaw halfway towards the center) then use a large hammer to make the cut larger.

In short he did not do the prep work and has minimal training felling trees. Never take a large tree down without professional help.

Yup and he had a shit escape route. Sure it appears clear of debris...but it was an impassable fucking incline. This guy fucked up on a lot of things.
