We had a tall, and I mean tall—80 + feet—elm tree that was dying. In the ice storm 2 years ago, it shed 4 branches. It was about dead and leaning toward the house. All in all, not a good situation. So, we had it cut down 2 weeks ago. Here's some pictures of the wreckage:

We offered the wood to some people for firewood; they have been cutting a bit each day, but the rest is too big for his saw. Here's what it looks like today:

We have someone else with a bigger saw coming this week to cut and take away the rest. To give you an idea of how big it is, here's a picture of the stump. It is 53 inches in diameter.
