    You don’t even want to know how horrifying some of this logging equipment has become, according to the attached video.

    The Scorpion in the video is about the size of a pickup truck, with insectoid arms extending 25-30 feet.

    One extremely large machine that is being used to cut down trees is the Timberjack. This incredibly large machine weighs about 13 tons, and can do the job that would normally take an entire team of lumberjacks with only one operator. This machine can grab a hold of a single tree with a telescopic grapple, saw it down, de-branch it, and cut it down to shape. This machine can take down 800 trees in one day.
