This is a question Destruction, Demolition and Deconstruction

The Lone Groover says "I've just taken down a pergola with a metre-deep Russian vine over the top. It had nine birds' nests in it, and had rotted all of the cross timbers. It covered the entire lawn and needs a skip of its own." What's the biggest/worst thing you've ever taken down? Tell us your tales of demolition and wanton destruction.

Comedy Cliche
I was sorting the attic out, and carrying a large box of books from one pile to another. So large that I couldn't see my feet and, inevitably, managed to miss the flooring boards, and plunge one foot down between the joists. Large chunks of plaster plus the collected dust and debris of about 80 years showered down into the room below, closely followed by the random contents of the boxes and jars I'd knocked over, and a stream of swearing.

Naturally, because the universe has a sense of humour, my wife's mother, an elderly lady with a heart condition, happened to be directly underneath at the time.
