Post #4529512

We were very lucky with all the storms around us, we had no damage ourself.

We did get a lot of debris from the storm. Large pieces of roofing, metal siding, insulation, plywood etc. I hate to complain with all the suffering other people have had.

The only problem I have is a big piece of plywood maybe 3/4" thick and maybe 3'x4' in a tree hanging over our deck. It has huge nails or screws sticking out of it. Easily large enough to cause serious damage when it falls.

The tree is an old Magnolia and the limbs would not support a person climbing to the top. The piece of wood is probably 30' above ground.

It is not close to the center of the tree so no way to get to it with a ladder.

Can't get close enough to cut the supporting limbs with a pole saw.

I thought about a fire truck but there would be no way to get a fire truck to the tree without taking fence post out.

Anyone have any suggestions?
