How's this for a non-bike question...
There was a huge oak tree (more like two trees) in our back yard until all this rain loosened up the dirt around it and down it fell. It was about 60 ft tall and 7 ft around at the base (x2, it split and fell in two different directions). I just got a quote from the tree people--$1500 just to cut the brush and small branches and leave the logs in my back yard. I don't have $1500.
It is the only tree in my yard that I'll have to deal with, all my other trees are small and not an issue. I took apart a smaller tree, probably about half the size, that fell in my front yard by renting a saw for a couple hours which is all I needed. It's in my neighbor's yard so I need to do something and it will take longer than an afternoon. I was thinking of buying a kickass 20" husqvarna saw for $500 (the same one I rented before), taking care of business, and selling the saw on craigslist. We don't have fire laws in this state, so a big bonfire will be in order.
Is it doable?
