Can this tree be saved?


Strong winds came up and split my favorite tree. Any opinions on if the tree looks like it can be saved, or do I need to get my hatchet out and play Paul Bunyon this weekend?

Hopefully the pics attached.

Well, I was thinking it had to come down. I am just doing some last minute checking to see if anyone thought it had a chance or if it could be repaired in some way.

It is close to the house but the pics don't show that it does lean away from the house so I think I can get it down ok.

I had a guy say he would take it out and remove the stump for $300. I may do that too. Especially since just bundling up the half that fell still has me a little sore.

300 is a pretty good price I had a stump ground down that was about that size and was charge 140 just for that part.Besides thats a nice looking home I would hate to see it get damaged let someone who is insured do it and save your back too
great stone on the front
