rather than "only do this if you know what youre doing" i see it as "only those who dont know what they're doing would do this."

Maybe ok to use 1 foot off the ground to separate the stem from the roots but 1 foot above your head?  I can personally testify that much smaller root sprung trees than what he was cutting can put a bad hurt on you in a big hurry.  If you give a tree like that room to move it can be on you before you can pick your foot off the ground to take your first step.

If you google chain fall, you will see pics. Some call them a chain hoist.
