I agree! Better to have someone with the know how and insurance tackle that. My Pop use to pick up extra cash trimming tree's.( He Had free labor with 3 sons to do the grunt work).
Oh craps, there are some whopper trees in there! From the 1st pics, I didn't suspect the size of some of them. You did right by not attempting yourselves.
The $400 job, that resulted in a limb crashing down on the side window of his 4 yr old 56 Pontiac Station Wagon Pounding the top to level with the bottom of the window and costing $600 to repair. Kind of took the wind out of that plan?
It was educational, watching Marv Ingram repair that car though. I did not know at the time that lead filling sheet metal was a dying art.

Even the guy who is doing this, commented that for the butt size of some of the pine he can't believe how tall they are.
I agree. The ones we have are 18" to 2ft or more at the butt and are only 40 -60ft in height. They do tend to have deep root systems and are very stable, at least in the soil around here.
