Tree Removal, Day 2

Ok, actually, I'm starting with the work done yesterday.  The first day, they got the sweet gum tree removed, and the lower half of all the oak tree branches.  It looked like this after Monday...

I couldn't even close the fence gates to let the cats outside for the late afternoon.

The pictures of the guy climbing to the top of the tree didn't come out at all (drat) except for this one, and you can't see much there.
 But by the time he was done (took about 3 hours), it looked like this...
Then the bucket crane guy went to work again.
The trunk got lower and lower.  And when THOSE chunks hit the ground, the cats hid deeper in the bedroom.
Lower...
A piece falling, and that's 3' in diameter...
A dragonfly took advantage of the rope...
And I'll stop there for today.  The final pics tomorrow (I hope)!

Holy moly! That reminds me of when I had one cottonwood removed (about the same height) when I had the house. It was an all-day event that drew huge crowds. That cost about 2K to remove, but, unlike yours, it was close to the street.
