Ferngully beware! There is a new machine that can effectively cut down and chop up a tree in as little as a handful of seconds.

Known as the EcoLog 590, this claw-like creature can grab hold of a tree, cut it down, and then quickly remove its branches while sawing it into more smaller parts.

In a video posted to YouTube back in March, the EcoLog is shown making short work of its arboreal prey.

As of Nov. 17, the video in question has gotten over 209,000 views, more than 400 likes, and over 90 dislikes, presumably from environmentalists.

"Why does this thing look like the antagonist of a Disney movie based on the lives of cute forest animals?" commented one person earlier this week.

Despite the concerns about the Lorax's primary lobbying group, EcoLog itself has stated that they value the forest and adhere to all environmental regulations.

"We want our products and services to contribute to an ecologically sustainable society and drive environmental progress forward," says the company.
