just send it, but tie a big pickup to it for insurance! I’m Too big to climb a tree and scared of heights.

Theres lots of great vids on YouTube of people who thought tying a truck to pull a tree was a good idea.
I get that. But it sure makes a guy feel better to cut it till it leans and then drag it down with the truck for insurance, since I don’t carry any! I cut a 100’ pine down one time someone had added onto the house in a horse shoe around. Tied a JD 4960 to it with a 1” cable. It fell as intended but I wasn’t about to risk it!
I’ve cut enough trees and pulled them down that I have a really good idea what my 05 dodge will pull down and what needs a tractor. But I live in small town Texas where many times a large tree extraction by a pro with insurance and bucket trucks can cost the full value of the home.
