We’re not sure how many Christmas tree harvesting videos you’ve seen, but you probably haven’t seen one involving a helicopter. This video was shot at Noble Mountain Christmas Tree Farm in Oregon. Oregon is the nation’s largest producer and exporter of Christmas trees and this farm makes quicker work of their job by employing a 206B3 Jetranger helicopter. The guy at the controls defying the laws of physics with his tree slinging skills is Dan Clark. However, as impressive as the pilot is, we’re in awe of whoever on the ground is hooking these trees up so quickly as well. Watch the video below.
