@zannej It was a silver maple and they grow these double and triple trunks that start to rot in the center. I never liked the tree and the neighbor whose tree it was loved it and she remembered climbing it as a kid. They did take off a bunch of big limbs on our side and even had the tree cabled to try and save it. The shade was nice and I hated the leaves in the fall. The insurance guy came the next day and all that was left of the tree was some sawdust on the grass. He said he never saw a homeowner remove one that fast. And just asked our hours and paid 20 bucks per hour and added in what one dump truck load to haul away would cost. So was very fair on the cleanup I thought. He went thru and figured out the cost of removal and a new pergola and some replacement of siding and roofing and to rebuild the full rail on the side of the deck. I used a couple come a longs and an auto floor jack and jacked and pulled it back in place. I replaced the bad broken wood and re-blocked and lagged and bolted everything square and plumb. We had two days in the 90s was perfect for fixing it up. Scrubbed the siding and its good enough so is the bent tin on the roof its hardly noticeable. If it stops raining in the next few day I will take a pic of the after repairs. I only have a couple hundred bucks in the repairs but quite a bit of free labor on our part. Just glad it missed the main house and the roof protected the tub and no one was hurt. As a side note the neighbor whose tree hit me just got a new roll out awning because his was 9’ and he wanted 12’. We got to talking about the loss of shade and he said I bet my old awning would fit the end of the deck. My poles are exactly 9’ so I guess I have a sunsetter to install.
