Minnesota_boy,   With a shallow rooted tree like a black spruce with that much weight leaning the way it is, there is a VERY good chance you would push the base of the tree out from under itself.

Stan;
I am the phone company!  :D
I can drop the tree without dropping the line.
If I drop the line then drop the tree I have to raise the line again which involves more work than required.
I can safely remove this tree without the added expense of heavy equipment, it's about an hours drive one way up the highway.

Could it be......that cktate discovered when Kevin looked out his window, upon completion of a nap. That his head was still cocked in the slanted sleep position.  :D

Went after that birch today and the guy wanted a maple and the birch taken down between the boathouse and the neighbors cottage.
Looks like I'll get the maple to mill.
The birch was punky with just a tiny bit of good wood on the left side of the stump as shown in the --Photos MUST be in the Forestry Forum gallery!!!!!--.--Photos MUST be in the Forestry Forum gallery!!!!!--.--Photos MUST be in the Forestry Forum gallery!!!!!--.com/photo/26601181/120344371bDITva

Actually, it was perfect weather.
Just cool enough to keep from over heating and no wind which made it perfect for dropping trees.
He has a couple more birch with bad tops but I was too tired to tackle them after rigging down a bunch of limbs. (pooped smiley)
