A neighbors city tree was removed because roots were growing into his sewer line. This was an ash tree and really big. The city crew worked unbelievably fast. They dropped, cut up, and loaded this in less than 1 hour. They did not limb it, just dropped it accurately in the street. Gone and it's no more.
I talked with the crew they were saying that they are removing up to 10 tress a day. Most due to stress from our water shortage, but not this one. I ask about obtaining wood for milling, but no the they don't do that, they chip them up.
