You're already right. He's planning to cut more of his leaners before they fall. He was very lucky on the first one - the roots gave out and it fell perfectly parallel to the house. He's not banking on the same luck.

I like the sky hook that the rope is hooked too.  :D  If I would of fell that tree across the walk way it would be all broke up.   ::)  My wife says I can break anything,which is true. I have heard of tires being put down first.
