Surprisingly common and potentially very dangerous. There was a case a few years ago in the states of a little boy who was killed in a similar situation. He was playing in the hole while his grandfather was working on the other end, just like this guy.

Very sad.

If you are working with trees and chainsaws make sure you understand what could potentially happen.

I totally agree with Michael C. I have even had trees on hill sides that blew over and I cut the the to retune a Large stump to upright to hold the hillsides soil in place

I used Wild cucumber and milkweed and Dandelion In progression and it worked well Y.M.M.V.
