Trending: Chainsaw-wielding nun removes downed tree in road after Irma

A Florida nun chose to forego divine intervention this week, instead picking up a chainsaw to join the clean-up efforts following Hurricane Irma.

While Sister Ann did her part, others should be wary if deciding to do some cleanup themselves.

Sister Margaret Ann didn't even change out of her habit as she took to a fallen tree with gusto.

Sister Margaret Ann of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in southwest Miami-Dade County chose to help out by cutting down a fallen tree in a full habit and covered by a black apron and work gloves.

"As we recover from Hurricane Irma, these acts of kindness remind us all that we are one community in Miami Dade County!"

The Florida nun was later filmed by police officers investigating the damage in Dade county.

In an interview with CNN, Sister Margaret Ann told host Erin Burnett why she made a decision to pitch in. "So I wanted to help out".

A post on the police department's Facebook page shows Sister Margaret Ann - of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in Miami - shows photos and video of her smiling as she helps clear the brush.

When it comes to neighbors helping neighbors it doesn't get much better than this. Also in addition to these risks, tension in fallen trees might cause unexpected movement while cutting them, making the limbs pop out, which may hurt the person trying to cut it or hit the equipment or maybe cause the trunk to move in a way that leads you to become stuck.
