Thank y'all for the input. I think I am going to play it safe and drop the whole tree. I can't get any equipment to where the tree is so I am going to try tying it off to the two trees next to it and lowering it down after i cut it at the base. I talked to a guy that works in the tree removal business and he suggested this method. I will be doing the removal in the morning so I will post the results when I get done. Thanks again for all the help.
