The sling looks a little wimpy for that size tree. What do y'all suspect

If you can't get two cranes then double sling it (inverted V) to stop it
tipping one way or the other as it lifts.

Do not put a single sling on one end with an accomplice holding a guide
rope on the other end, unless you want it to go comically and perhaps
horribly wrong.  After all it is on You tube, if it goes viral the Google
ads will pay for the job.
