RE: still having technical difficulty

You have prayers from here, too, Pam.  I sure hope he can take out your tree
without too much damage to the surrounding landscape, leave you fire wood
and wood chips for mulch.  If nothing else, you can use the logs as edging
unless they have carpenter ants in them.  Having a tree fall on your roof is
a frightening thing.  I'm glad you called someone trained to take down a
tree the right way.  

When the grand old cottonwood less than a foot from our porch starts ailing,
it will take a skillful arborist to bring it down safely.  It is at least
80' tall and >2' in diameter.   Right now it is still healthy and provides
tremendous shade in the summers reducing our cooling needs in the house.

Actually the tree isn't dead.  It is leaning at a 45 degree angle however.
It may have lost some of it's root system during the drought is all I can
figure.  Or carpenter ants may be the culprit.  I had one come down further
out back right after I moved in the house, carpenter ants had literally
eaten the roots away.  He's going to call me today and try to come out
Saturday to have a look-see if he can squeeze me into his schedule.   Hope
he can make it.  Thanks 4 prayers dear.
