This cedar tree split several years ago and one side just this big fell on my house. There was no real damage except for a small hole pushed up in one shingle which was easily replaced. I was really lucky there. I have finally decided to start planning for a new shop and it will go just to the right of this tree. Since it had already split I decided it would probably be a good idea to remove the other half as it was pretty much rotting down low in the larger part of the stump. Didn’t want it falling on my shop in the future. I will come back later and saw the stump down lower and maybe salvage some more of it. Might put a table top on it later don’t know yet.
My son and I cut it down this weekend. It was 70’ +- tall. I cut it in 9’ sections with the plans of maybe having the larger sections sawed up for boards and turning the smaller end and branches. I will finish trimming the limbs out and keep down to a couple of inches in dia for turning. This should last a while.
The last picture shows limbs on a slab left from the removal of an old apartment I had removed last year. If the walls hadn’t been cracking bad I thought about just adding on to it but the roof was really bad and sides bout to fall so just removed it except for the slab. This is where my shop will sit.
