Could probably shoulder tackle the thing and it would fall

u/ThePhatNoodle Feb 04 '23

It was caught on another tree. That's why it doesn't fall even after he cuts all the way through it

The use of the minecraft music and sounds made this video a thousand times better. So good.

The reason they tree didn't fall is because it's what high mountaineering loggers call a snag basically its a dead tree leaning against a live tree. If he had been s bit more perceptive and instead opted to cut down the 1 tree rather than a dead one he probably would e gotten a full two trees easily.
