Taking a tree down

Our friend noticed that this tree had a large crack where a large branch that hung directly over our house connected to the main trunk.  It seemed one strong wind away from falling on our house. Luckily for us, this same friend told us that he happens to enjoy taking down trees, has all the right gear and would do it for us for free! 

It was fun, then nerve racking then awesome watching Dan cut the tree down. The nerve racking part was the part RIGHT before we could see which direction the tree was falling. He did such a good job and was "off" his lined up mark by only a few feet. Amazing. 

And now we have SOOOOOO MUUUUUUUUUUCH debris to cut into pieces and haul somewhere to burn. Anyone want some firewood??
