Long time ago one guy told me how his dad once pruned one fruit tree.. He said they have big ( I think was cherry in the matter) fruit tree in the garden and his dad decide to radically prune it to reduce the space it takes.. He climbed at the tree and start to cut main branches while lifting upwards.. When he decided to go down he had no enough branches to get down ( or to jump from a high).. He was yelling his wife which was in a house to come and bring the ladder.. The guy told me that it was so hilarious..
