Here's some more photos. Had 3 reputable tree contractors come out and look at taking down a tree in my yard. All 3 gave me a quote, then looked at me and said they wouldn't touch it.

It has been topped multiple times, limbed up by the power company, was 15 feet from main power lines, 15 feet from my house, and 20 feet from my feeder line to my house.

So, I hounded the power company to take it down out of safety for them as it would have fallen on the lines. They agreed, no cost to me. .

I didn't even have to haul off my logs, one of my neighbors came down to haul them away and use them to heat his garage. I made out like a bandit!
