Meanwhile, before and after photos. Look at bottom left for the wheelbarrow, which gives you an idea of the size and scope of the mess.
Notice the humongus pile of branches. That was half the tree; also, there is, er, was, a dogwood tree under there as well.
And now you can see a pile behind the wheelbarrow - all the branches I sawed off. Amazing what you can do with a bowsaw and a little saw and a machete. Although a chainsaw would be nice...
Gotta price out getting all the green branches chipped up and the skeleton of tree chopped up. The big part still has to be taken down as it's been compromised. Ah sigh, stupid pine. Can't do squat with the wood.
