Video of the Week - Oak Tree Moving

A week or so ago I posted some photos of the 100-year-old oak tree which is being moved in my town of League City. This past Thursday night they pulled it out of the ground. They had made an attempt on Wednesday but the tree was heavier than they thought and the steel beams they had put under the tree, which were attached to the crane, began to buckle during the attempt. They replaced the beams on Thursday. The tree weighs close to 600,000 pounds. Here's the video the city posted.
