George are the trees close to any electric lines? There have been times around here
when we needed to take trees down close to the road and were afraid it would hit the
electric lines. We called the electric company and they trimmed enough off that we
could down the tree without any damage being done.
      Sometimes all it takes is some whittling off and then the average person can
handle the rest with care.
