OK, it's not a big tree by professional standards, but it's the biggest tree I have felled, and with the worse potential consequences, being so close to the house.

I had planned to trim some branches on the house side of the tree but it got too difficult for an amateur like me to handle so I did the (hopefully) sensible thing and canned that part. Unfortunately a consequence of that, was that same dam branch almost hit and damaged my car because I had planned the operation and car placement carefully, so the trunk would not fall on the car and crush it, then forgot to adjust my plan for car placement having not actually trimmed that branch. Only some good driving by my good mate George avoided the branch denting the car roof and smashing windows. Great Job George!
