Due to the plethora of smart people here, thought I’d seek some advise.
After a tornado earlier this year and the costly removal of my favorite oak tree, another problem has presented itself.
Directly above our garage and 60 feet above in another tree, lies a branch from the oak tree once removed. It’s literally spear shaped, 5 inches in diameter, 15 feet long and seemingly ready to fall at any time but hasn’t. Neither Marie or I have parked in our garage, walked under or allowed anyone near, in fear it will fall. Have tried to dislodge the damn thing with a rifle and shotgun ( w/ both buckshot and slug ) but it won’t fall. The neighbor suggested to allow his grandson to fly a drone and drop a fish-line with weight–> string–> rope attached but to do so, requires the kid to be directly under it… Not happening. Of course, thought about calling tree dudes again but damn, 8000.00 the last time to cut and remove one tree.
