Re: Stupid ? Prolly, but......
And if a piece falls wrong because of weight distribution, or a saw bucking pops a piece your way, you ain't that fast! Injury can, and often does occur.
My father (Twp. road worker) was in a Payloader bucket, harnessed to the bucket, to trim trees along the roadway. His coworker was operating the bucket controls. A limb that was bucked by the saw lashed at his knee. Yes a bit of a freak accident.
But it blew out four ligaments, tore up the meniscus, and turned the top of the tibia (the knuckle area) to bone meal.
I would keep trying for an outfit to do it. Their liability vs. yours.
Or use a safer method to drop them... a come-along, pulley and cable, mounted as high as you can reach, and situated right, can pull the tree away while felling it.
