Physics in cutting down a Christmas tree



blog-0918183001390869165.jpgBefore Christmas, my family went out to cut down a tree. When we picked one out, it came time to chop it down. Using force to saw at the stump, my dad used his physics wisdom to cut towards the center of the stump so the tree wouldn't fall on him when he made it through. Then we proceded to purchase the tree, and toss it on the roof of the car. However, we remembered that when driving 60 miles per hour on the expressway, that there would be a lot of wind resistance. So, we decided to strap it down as to not lose our tree on the way home.
