I thought you were going to say a Ford pulled both the tree and trucks in the opposite direction....

My fleet was mainly Toyota trucks. You could accidentally get 400,000 miles out of the things, until they rusted apart on you. You could fit parts of a chopped up tree in any of them.

My own truck was a truck built for a man. Not a girly man Chevvy or Ford.

Dodge Ram boys.

Sold it before one of you scratched it with a tree limb. Pulled a manly sailboat behind it too.

Yes, if you know how, you can fish off the back of a sailboat. Towed by a Dodge Ram. You have to know people that can tie flies for you though.

Unsharpened chainsaws stretched are the worst. Hollywood makes movies about them for a reason.

If you are driving a Tonka Toy then you know nothing about trucks. Ford is #1, has been and will always be, there are more old Fords running around this country than any other truck ever produced. I guess the uglier the truck the more manly it is in your eyes.

Why not just blow it in place? I agree with trying to pull it over.

For the tree as described, attach the pull cable up the trunk as far from the root ball as you can.

A truck in reverse should pull with about the same force as the truck in first gear.
