    Hook it up, cut a little on the back side, cut the front side (lean side) ,and pull the bottom out ???? ;?
    Edit: oh wait, staggered under cut and pull it out ??

    Is it going to hit any other trees on the way down? Is the trunk big enough so you can make a shallow hinge, plunge-cut behind it, then pull the back-cut out the back?

    I think that could work, I didn't measure but I think is about 10", I will look it over more tomorrow, No trees behind it, a drive way and room to pull the bottom out, in front what u see.

    That sounds like a reasonable approach. Not being there, always hard to tell from pictures.
    Everybody clear out of range.
    Pull the bottom out with the PU.

    PS: make sure it breaks at the cuts, & not stand the tree back up & pull over on you :eek:

    Hook a chain to it and I'll Be over latter this afternoon and pull it out with this! Then we can drag it any place you want to cut it ==c

    What ever you decide to do, use great caution there's some danger lurking there.;)
