This trope is very much TruthInTelevision both in military parachuting and recretional skydiving, and surviving such situation is a mandatory part of training. Pilots are equipped with hooked knives for slicing through their parachute cords if this becomes a problem and some military parachutes have releasable extended lines so that you can reach the ground if you are too high up to get down or risk a fall. In recreationa skydiving it is usually better to hang on the harness and wait for help rather than to try to get yourself loose (and risk falling uncontrolled on the ground).

* This is TruthInTelevision, and the military have taken steps to prevent it.

* This is TruthInTelevision in recreational skydiving as well, and surviving such situation is a mandatory part of skydiving instruction. It is usually better to hang on the harness and wait for help rather than to try to get yourself loose (and risk falling uncontrolled on the ground).
** Many experienced skydivers (1000+ jumps) have very likely landed on trees multiple times during their skydiving careers.

* In ''TheDrewCareyShow'' Tim Allen (AsHimself) gets stuck in the tree in Drew's back yard after a failed parachute publicity stunt. Drew doesn't cut him down since the idea of having a celebrity stuck in your tree is funnier than letting him leave.

* In an episode of ''FatherTed'', during a flight emergency, Jack takes the plane's two parachutes and attaches the second one to the drinks trolley. As the credits roll, we see Jack and the trolley both stuck in the tree, with Jack vainly trying to reach it.
