How about mounting giant circular saws to a pole and swinging it from a helicopter?

Sound like that only happens in the movies?

Check out frightening close just how well helicopter tree trimmers really are.

When trees need trimmed along power lines crews in trucks with lift buckets are obsolete. A helicopter with a giant series of circular saws gets the job done in moments.

I have witnessed in person the use of such a cool but terrifying tool. One slip of the controls and a helicopter could cause quite a mess. For ground crews close by or bystanders it could certainly be fatal.

If you ever get to see the use of helicopter tree trimming check it out. It is even more impressive in person than it is in this video shared by LADbible on Facebook.
