What Is Snapping These Trees In Half?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 5th, 2014

Something has been going around snapping trees in half, and it’s certainly not a moose.

    Sorry but Les is wrong about how trees break. He’s standing in a pole thicket. These are not healthy trees, and no, they don’t all just come crashing down in a wind storm every time. Rotting trees break prematurely before others do. And when one breaks, it doesn’t just take down a healthy tree. If there are multiple rotting trees, he could have piling as is seen in one of his other scenes, but sadly he didn’t even apply it there.

    In another scene on the film, there are the saplings that are broken about 7′ up and Todd claims they are boundary markers. Todd is full of crap! Those ARE from Snow Loading and Les should have known this given his field experience!

    Unfortunately Les seems to be caught up in Todd and the potential bigfoot ratings. I’m disappointed in a few people who seem to be buying into Todd’s claims without actually countering them in front of the camera or recorder. Todd has no special talents or outdoor skills guys.

    I was with you in the last paragraph, until you went the “no special talents or outdoor skills”. That’s a preposterous statement. He’s arguably a “professional outdoorsman”.

    I agree absolutely, though, about Todd Standing. He has no positive standing in my book.

    I am not going to get into which of you have more time in the wild. It doesn’t matter anyway. I am confident of Les Stroud’s outdoor experience, and I can’t say the same about you.

    Me and my friends used to go around in the woods pushing over old rotten trees, sometimes climbing halfway up them to get them to break. And also just breaking trees and stuff for fun. Was it good for nature? Probably not, but we were bored kids. If he ventured out in the forest in the Pacific Northwest where I used to live, he might think there was a pack of territory marking bigfoots out there.

    Also, I’m not saying it couldn’t be bigfoots. The weird tree marking thing sounds like something bigfoots might do, and I have read of other weird broken and twisted trees before that people attribute to bigfoot. I’m just saying, bored pre-teen, early teen kids, wandering the woods can break stuff all around certain areas too.

    Goodfoot, I think you may have confused some of what I said. Yes Les is a pro outdoorsman, wasn’t referring to him.

    Todd on the other hand simply uses his camera to make himself look like one. If you had followed his early outdoor exploits, you’d know what I am talking about.
