I decided I should tackle the tree today..it seemed to have shifted lower overnight and I am not too keen on it making an unplanned collapse.
Pepper and I jumped into the truck and went to the storage unit and got the trusty plug-in chainsaw and had at it.
I trimmed off all the branches so I could really see what was going on..and to my surprise I fount the only thing holding the thing up is the end of a branch jammed into the gutter. I think it is going to require going onto the roof and cutting it from there so it has a place to fall.
Or the other option is to toss a rope around it and pull it and the chunk of gutter down with it from about 20 feet away. I'll think on it...
