Concerned about a towering, top-heavy crooked palm tree that had the potential to cause harm to humans and property, a daring arborist in San Bernadino, California, climbed the 100-foot leaning trunk like a cowboy upon a horse and cut off the offending fronds that were weighing it down. The trunk snapped back, taking the man for a terrifying ride. This process took a great amount of skill and courage. Luckily, the arborist took all necessary precautions before attempting such a feat.
The man who climbed the palm tree climbed to cut it because the palm was already crooked, causing danger to people who live nearby and passing through there.
