    So I came home from work today to find this.

    It was a nice sunny day a little rain earlier this am. Neighbor said it just made some pops and dropped to the ground.

    Its about 5' - 6' diameter at the bottom

    Time to get out the checkbook :eek:

    I might but there is still about another 100' hanging out up there

    You could buy a nice stihl saw for the price your going to pay. Buy a saw and rent a chipper!

    we had a 40' evergreen fall this past weekend. 72 mph gusts. didn't think it'd topple a tree like that, but guess i was WRONG.

    We got nailed with those storms in CT today.

    It took down the rest, it went through the crotch of the chestnut tree in the background and split it from 30' up down to the base.

    Crazy stuff
    Chipper and saw here i come lol

    We had 2 MASSIVE (4' diameter) pin oaks come down in our yard this week- one on Saturday in a thunderstorm, one on Monday in an even more intense thunderstorm. Both appreared to be healthy from the exterior, some minor rot on the interior...lot of trees down near me right now!

    Your 16" Echo can handle it if you know what your doing. I have a 18" bar on my Husqvarna 372XP and I can cut down any size tree I want. But if you don't have much delling experiance you should get help.

    STIHL?!? I dont believe I have ever been compelled to post because of any namesake discussion. but stihl?! how about a husq 359 with a 20". and the wife got it for me for my birthday. hence why she is the wife. or we could all go at that tree each take a cord, stand back and enjoy the smell of wood chips and two stroke.

    359 is a very nice saw. My favorite saw is my Husqvarna 372XP.
