That first one is an easy fix. Just tilt the camera a little to the right.

I wonder if you could pull it back straight with a come along and then pin it down with some steel fence posts.

Here's where ya get out yur throw bag to set yur rope or ropes. Those black spruce are purty tough and usually pull purty easy. But yur rope needs lots of height.
Sometimes when faced with a tree like that, that I don't know will HANG on I will use two ropes in it, each pulling at a 30 to 45 degree angle.
Or....... ya could always climb it and jump the top over the cable.  ;D

There's a few  ways to tackle this one that I see.
Two as Chet described and a third where I partialy cut the butt and let the top rest gently on the strand then go up trim the top off close to the cable and come back down, finish the cut and let the tree drop to the ground.

Jeeze Kevin,

You're overlooking the obvious and easy way to do it.  I'd tell you but you always make fun of my brilliance ::)  Anyway it would take a helper.  Can you get anyone to work with you?
milking and logging and sawing and milking

Bro; helpers aren't in our budget.  :D
What's your suggestion?
They won't let me burn it down or blow it up.  :D

... and I'm not dropping the cable.

Kevin, yur option wouldn't work for me. The folks I work for frown on the idea of resting trees on high voltage lines. Seems to always blow power.  :-/  They also aren't as tough as dem big fat Com cables.

 Looks like a bucket truck job, or possibly a crane.

Or if you get a good heavy snow it may come down by itself, then it will be an easy one.

Get a 1010 John Deere with loader bucket.  Raise it as high as it will go and push the tree back into the woods.
I eat a high-fiber diet.  Lots of sawdust!

Have the phone company come out and lay the cable on the ground. No harm no foul, this don't work with electric lines.  :-/
I may have been born on a turnip truck, but I didn't just fall off.
