What to do With a Felled Tree
Oak trees have a much harder denser wood than something like a poplar so it can be more difficult to cut through the wood. Also they are a lot heavier, even more so if they are green (still alive). However the wood from them can be valuable since it is used for so many things. You should be able remove it yourself but it will take a lot of hard work because of the weight factor and the hardness. I think some of the negative comments on this instructable are from people who make their living removing trees and don't want people to do it themselves. I have been cutting down trees for many years and I am not a pro. I have done it for people in exchange for the wood, firewood, with the agreement that they take care of all the mess and small branches. There is probably someone who would be willing to pay you for the tree and take it out for you. People who run those small saw mills take trees like oak trees and turn them into lumber which sells for a premium. Oak firewood is one of the best there is although I hate to see good wood burned for heat, that is an option. If you get ambitious you can keep the wood and use it for your own projects. I wish oak trees grew here where I am. You might fine my instructable interesting.http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Hardwood-Fl...
Like I said in my other comment, I think some of the negative comments are comming from people who make a living charging several thousand dollars to cut down trees that could be easily done by by a homeowner. We are not talking about the trees that require a crane to lift the branches to keep them from falling on roofs, but ones your size are easily in the DIY realm.
Most of the projects are from cottonwood (poplar and narrow-leaf type). No splinters in the bras, they've all been sanded down, plus they're more for the auction to raise funds than for wearing. And I do have an electric chainsaw; although I think the chain needs sharpening. Thanks for the links!
Yah, you've got a great place out there for wood supply.
Hi, Interesting projects.Just curious if you know the types of trees your working with? Different types have different properties and I have found that some work better for some things and not so good for others. So I was wondering. Although I have no need of a bra, one of my first thoughts was "splinters?"Something you might want to invest in if you haven't already is an electric chainsaw. You can get them pretty cheap and there is no need for all the problems with gas. CPO outlets has a really good selection. Here is a search result if you need it. https://www.cpooutlets.com/on/demandware.store/Sit...
Thinking about it, I thought you might find this Instructable of mine interesting.http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-get-wood-an...The videos are a little long and not as high a quality as I would have liked but it is about getting wood.

Do you know about how long a process like this would take? We have a large, dying oak in our backyard and we have been thinking about removing it. My husband works quite a bit so I'm not sure that we would be able to do this ourselves. Looking into hiring a professional might be the best option for us. <a href='http://www.souliereandson.com/Tree_Removal_Stump_Grinding_Biddeford_ME.html' >http://www.souliereandson.com/Tree_Removal_Stump_Grinding_Biddeford_ME.html</a>
WOW, I don't think your tips here should even be available because someone else may try and use them and end up dead.
I am in a similar situation and don't have much room to cut down a tree in my backyard. I'm glad that you mentioned checking for obstacles that falling branches could land on. It makes sense that clearing the area could ensure that nothing will be damaged in the process. Before my husband and I remove the tree, I will make sure to remove everything from the area. http://www.kiwitreelopping.com.au/services
