The journey Santa Claus takes dropping off presents is almost as intense as the one your Christmas tree took before winding up in your living room.

This video, now getting a second life after originally making the rounds in 2011, shows a helicopter carrying soon-to-be Christmas trees out of an Oregon forest and placing them effortlessly into a waiting truck, where they will be whisked away to various tree lots to await their fate.

The pilot is impressive. Not nearly as impressive as actually taking your tree down before Valentine's Day, but impressive, nonetheless.
