I have this walnut that I always thought was cool cuz it’s a walnut. But storm last week sheared it in half and I can’t imagine that it can support the canopy anymore. So I guess it has to come down right. Hard to see from the pics but if you cut the diameter in half your screwed right

Yet there it is right in front of you supporting itself.

 

If it's not going to hit anything let the next storm do it for you.

If it were my tree I would get a tree service to cut off the broken trunk at the Y and leave the rest of the tree standing.

The thing about letting it fall is you may have to deal with the root mass sticking up out of the yard. I had 2 of them fall last year. One hit my house.

That tree is uglier than Ballmo. 

I've been working with a therapist on boosting my self-esteem. 


I guess I'm going to have to go back to square one. :(
