There's nothing more frustrating than something that seems easy turning out to be very, very hard.

In this 'Tree versus Black Beast' video, it would seem a large diesel 4x4 truck could yank this seemingly dead tree out of the ground pretty easily.

Unfortunately, the tree was stronger than not only the strap used to try to pull it out on the first try but also stronger than the truck itself.

The truck does finally win, but only after several tries and many of the tree's lateral roots were cut.

This task ended up being almost more trouble than it was worth. Just a suggestion, next time use a chainsaw to cut the tree down to where a stump grinder could take care of the rest. If nothing else, it would eliminate the wear and tear on the poor truck.
