So around 3:30am on Monday morning (during Hurricane Irma) I heard a massive crack and bang in my front yard. 50ft-ish tree in my front yard, nearly the size of my house, had fallen. Luckily causing minimal damage, only really to the gutters. My question (see photos). With help of neighbors, we carved this tree up really well, but the area left is pushing likely 1000+ lbs of weight onto the ground - between the tree, grass, and root. I want to cut it at the stump (you can see where I started doing that) but I also need the grass and roots to fall backwards. I understand the saw would seize so I was planning many smaller strategic cuts. Looking for advise. I've called around for professionals to do it but with the impact in my area, it will be a while. Some have told me to have a chain on the tree and pull it backwards with a truck to lift it and set it back, some have told me to cut the grass and let it fall leaving only the root connected. I'm wondering if I continue the cut that I started at the stump whether it could fall backwards. My main concern is that it will fall forwards which would be a nightmare. Seeing if anyone has experience and suggestions?
