I'd seen this before but here is a stabilized video that really let's you get more detail and see how insanely close to the ground and trees Graham Dickinson's wingsuit flight was.

@Robert Gentel,
Always amazes me.

The film perspective is deceptive because you are not aware of the true slope of the ground they are "flying" (actually falling) over. The ground appears almost level, when in fact it is very steep. Easy to forget that you still need a parachute to land.
