I have a large tree in my front yard that had a large section split off this weekend and I am looking for some advice on how to best handle the situation. Ideally, I would love to save this tree as it is a large very old tree that also provides a lot of privacy from the main road and adds character to the front yard. I am not sure if this tree can be saved given the severity of the break and have attached some pictures that show the damage. I have a few questions I am hoping some experienced members of this community can help answer: Can you tell what kind of tree this is from the pictures? In the second attachment titled "Tree Split Close-Up", do the dark areas indicate some kind of disease that caused the break? If yes, is the rest of the tree likely to be affected? Do you think the tree can be saved or do I need to remove the entire tree? The last picture shows a power-line that runs through the branches of still standing portion of the tree and the power line does not connect to a house as it is between two poles along the street, should I go through my insurance company or the power company to get the tree removed (if it is determined it can't be saved) or both? This tree is located in Southwest Virginia. Any advice provided by the community is appreciated!!
