Now looking at the potential of humans (including myself) with regard to understanding complex natural phenomena.

The Faller is coming manana to drop some tall trees around the garden. My 38 year old daughter remembers that she was the same height as one Balsam that is doomed. She was maybe 4 years old then. She's about 5'11" now and the Balsam is about 60' and a beautiful tree. I went out and apologized to the tree and I'll ask George, the Faller, to leave a long butt so I can mount the Sun Dial (all brass, Lee Valley) I got for Christmas.
I used to do my own felling which is probably why my right wing is kinda iffy: the Stihl 051 (3' bar) would leak chain oil into the cylinder if I didn't leave the saw standing on end. When the cylinder is full of oil and you yank the starter chord something has to give and it won't be the saw.
It's gonna be a mess of limbs and stumps whatever I think. As Butch Cassidy said (or he should have) to Sundance Kid when they jumped:
"Both feet. Let's Go!"
PS: I now keep a "Husky" 365 with a 30" bar sharp and fueled under the work bench - that's where and how I want it.
