I got the call from Camille early this morning. She said her gardener had told her she should just let me cut up the tree. I rushed over before work and began cutting. I could not get through the biggest stuff, and after loading the truck entirely, there was still all of this remaining. I will be heading back at lunch to try to pick up another load, and then after work, hopefully for another. I'd really like to get the main trunk bits for some very large pieces, but I don't know how that'll pan out. I probably need to rent a larger chainsaw, or let the city cut it up, and hope I meet with them in time, and that they don't mind me taking the pieces.
Might also need help lifting them. Even the smaller branches - 8" diameter, 3'-4' long, were incredibly heavy. This is a very wet tree.
