    Have the neighbor do it with his excavator. Tracks in, cuts roots, crabs it with thumb and removes tree and stump. He made a killing last year lifting trees off houses after straight line winds rolled through. Then tree service goes to work.

    LOL. You will find lots of people have that reaction when a ladder is mentioned.

    I've always found it interesting to say the least, although I do understand the concern, but not to the point of basically saying a ladder should never be use in tree work.
    Welcome to AS Sir :).

    I think it just depends on the comfort of people in general. Some don't feel comfortable on a ladder, or in a bucket, or even holding a chainsaw or axe. But then again, you would think that those who hold such opinions would avoid being an arborist in the first place.

    BTW, Thanks for the welcome.

    Could you rope the tree and throw the tail of the line into another tree further to the right and, use friction for a controlled fell?

    Poplar isn't too common around here. This is Betula Papyrifera, also known as paper birch.

    Mmmmm I think you may be mistaken, Betula Papyrifera is white birch/paper birch which has white bark your tree is not white???

    Helicopter tree if ever I saw one. One pick, right up and over the house and drop it in the landfill, collect check.

    Unless the landfill is the other way in which case I wouldn't want to pay the helicopter extra just for a little drama and a photo op.
