It will need a bucket truck and working in and around their wires so most of the time they would rather do it. The arborist they send out likes trees too much and he tells me it is healthy but the line crew boss wants it out as we are willing. So it is on their to do list when they have extra time. Some nice timber in that tree but they will chunk it up I think.

In the photo it looked like the house would be in line, not so bad before you have a new roof. A friend of mine had one take out half the house.

We have had some really bad winds over the last month and have been watching that thing a lot. Here is hoping we get it down before it comes down.
