How insane helicopter pilots harvest your Christmas tree at mad speeds

Once again, it's time buy dead trees. Once again, we should marvel at the way they harvest them: Using insane helicopters pilots flying at full speed, ferrying trees from one side of a hill to where the trucks are. It's crazy.


The pilot "ruthlessly owning inertia" in this video is Dan Clark.

Incidentally, did you know that "Oregon is the nation's biggest producer and exporter of Christmas trees, selling about 7.3 million trees a year, more than twice that of No. 2 North Carolina"? Me neither—and I don't care. I'm just too busy being in awe watching this guy flying those trees around in the middle of the fog like absolute madman.


The whole thing looks crazy from the cockpit too:

That guy in the fog is a JEDI. Or insane. The second video is interesting, but I can accept it as possible. That guy in the fog though is performing pure magic. I can just barely believe it!
