My grandfather told of cutting big Cedars that were rotten and hollow in the middle. The saw wasn't long enough to cover the diameter of the tree. They would make the undercut and have one guy crawl into the cavity and saw the circumference with one insideand one outside of the tree.

I don't know, it might be safer inside than outside while cutting a hollow tree but hard pass.

Yep,

No OSHSA back then, he said when someone got hurt on thee job they would prop them up against a stump and go back to work. If they were still alive at the end of the day they would take them to the hospital, if not then it was a trip to the undertaker.
