I had a hickory right next to my new house that died, probably because of root damage during construction of the house. It had virtually no limbs for the first 20 feet or so and was probably 50' tall. I used a bow and arrow to launch a nylon contractor's line through the very top. Then used that to pull up a stout rope, which in turn pulled up a 1/2" cable. The cable had a loop in the end and was long enough to bring the loop back to the ground to run the other end through.
After the whole thing was snugged up, I hooked it to my JD 70 more than 100' away. With the line that high in the tree, yet stil on strong limbs, it took very little pull to bring it down once it was notched and cut.
Maybe that was overkill, but it cost me virtually nothing, compared the $800 the tree co. wanted, and I was confident there was no way it would get the house OR the tractor/driver.
