How did they hook up the next load to the helicopter that fast? There was less than 3 seconds for the cord to get to the person on the ground then have the guy on the ground hook it up to the trees. Looks really cool, but I am calling fake.

It seems like the guy on the ground has the tree tied up on a harness already while the heli goes to drop and when it shows up again just hook the harness to the heli line hook

Yikes!
How would you like to be the guys on the ground?

That is a magnetic coupler and weighs about 5lbs.
Now, stand there, next to a pile of trees.
Here comes a 6000lbs heli that looks like it going to "crash" on my head.
It stops about 15' over your head and you have to catch that swinging, 5lbs, magnetic coupler, line it up with the receiver, and make sure you are not tangled up with the bundle of trees.
If you miss the coupler, it hits you in the head / arm / back. Or, it swings up into the tail rotor and you end up underneath a smoking pile of broken helicopter.

I wonder how many field workers have made that short trip to the truck by accident?

And all in a matter of 3 seconds.
