Hello, First, I wanted to say I've had 3 different arborist companies come out and look at the tree and have had as many answers. One said it is easily savable with cabling and bracing. One said it must come down, and the third said that it would be fine with trimming some of the heavier limbs and possibly a cobra cable. My neighbor has trimmed some of the branches that hung over his property previously and you can see that in the pictures as well. Let me know what you think. Is the tree salvageable? I'd hate to lose such a large shade tree on the South West side of the house. It blocks a lot of the afternoon sun. Unfortunately, the house is our rental in another state, so I'm limited in my ability to look at it myself, but i'm including the pictures that one of the arborists took for me.
