First, a ten foot section of a tree that size will weigh around 13,000 pounds; if you dig under it, make sure you leave plenty of support. Maples figure heavily when they get that big, you may have a small gold mine on your hands; locate a guitar (or similar) manufacturer, they like blanks that are cut small enough to carry out. I sure wish I was close to you, my 72” bandsaw would make beautiful slabs from such a beast. Whatever you do, be careful and best of luck.
