That maple tree surely presented a challenge for the crew that took it out. As you alluded to, it would present much more danger than a fully-standing or fully-downed one.

Some maples are so fast at growing that they forget to grow strong. Our silver maples were that way on Sunrise; but, since they were free (given to us as saplings by Doug & Lynn Stone who wanted to get rid of them) and gave us shade, quickly, I couldn't complain. Fortunately, a May ice storm took out the one in the front yard which I replaced with a pin oak.

The sugar maple that we just took out had borers.
