I have a 2 1/2’ wide pine about 80’ tall sitting within 5’ of a small house that I plan on remodeling. The house sits right on the property line to the right. The tree sits on the left.. right where I need to extend the house. I’d like the entire tree gone including the roots. Is it possible for me to pull this thing down and then cut it up? I know, I know the best way is to call a professional. I’m not going to take the call a professional route. I’d rather invest the $ in myself and have an awesome block/tackle/cable or rope system I can use again. I’m going to rent a tractor and dig. Then dig some more around the roots to loosen it up & pull it over with some assortment of block and tackle. LARGE block and tackle. I’m aware it will be expensive. I have a HUGE anchor tree about 70’ away from the tree i’d like gone. I also have three smaller trees i’ll Do this with as well. I’ve seen some folks using an electric winch and a remote on a long cord so you can be out of the way. If I use the tractor to pull I will use a change of direction pulley so I’m not in the line of fire. I’m looking for advice on equipment recommended for something like this. I’d also like to hear others experience at something similar.
