I know better than trying to cut that thing while it is still standing. I.m hoping that using all that chain and straps will get me far away and then i can tug at a side angle to it just enough to get it to slip off the other tree and fall.
My dad is experienced with this kind of thing, so i will probably see if he can stop over this weekend. it appears to be fairly stable and isnt at risk of hitting any buildings so if the wind took care of it for me, that would be ok. It would have a 50/50 of falling across my driveway and blocking it, but that isnt the end of the world.
