Tree was there 30 years ago when parents moved in and had already been hit by lightning then.
The tree was like 60-80 feet tall. My dad rented a cherry picker and used that with a chainsaw on a pole to cut down most stuff.
I helped some with tieing a rope to part of the tree and pulling on it with our riding lawn mower.
But ended up spending 9:30 until 6:30 in brunswick. though i managed to catch an hour or so extra sleep i was still waisted at my rpg.
Good part is my dad gave mne a $100 for helping. :)
