Yes sub it out if you don't have insurance. You going to need the proper licensing to remove those trees.

If there is nothing around then as long as you know. If any are dead look for pieces breaking off and spike right through your head. or it won't be alright now. Then there is wind, angle of tree debris piling up. 100ft is pretty tall my house is like 30ft at the peak. I'd do it if nothing around but ground.
