    are those powerlines as close to those limbs as they look? and if so how did you fall them without hitting the lines?

    I just cut down 2 trees in a similiar situation I don't think they were quite as high they were maples probably around 45 ft high. I never really cut down too many trees before the first one took me about an hour the second one identical took me around 30 minutes lol.

    Yes, a cable and phone line ran straight threw the tree. on the other side of the tree a house feed (power line) ran under the two biggest limbs. Those limbs were cut in two sections each and a 4 to 1 mechanical advantage was rigged two pull them back up in to the tree and then swung around the tree then lowered down. Almost ever limb in this tree was rigged in one form or another.

    There's a house 20' on one side and a house 20' the other side a shed about 5' behind it, plus a white vinyl fence all the way around it... There was no way to speed line the limbs out of the area due to other trees and houses.

    By far the most challenging removal for me.. I did have a certified linesman there with us. A good buddy of mine...It helps to have that advantage when bidding tree removals when electricity is involved.
