Helicopter flies trees

While driving the other day, I was forced to stop... not for cow traffic but for helicopter tree transport. There are houses here in Gstaad that are so difficult--if not impossible--to reach with trucks that helicopters are used to transport heavy and oversized items, like this pine tree. The helicopter picked it up behind an embankment to my right, flew over the road, and deposited it on the other side. It was very loud... and thankfully... very fast.
