You can't put it on the other side of the shed. Switch places with the flat trailer?

That tree will get larger & cause more issues as the years pass...cheaper to remove it now than later, plenty of people with BBQ smokers will take that oak off your hands! LOL

Clancy I am with you, I dont like to cut trees, I like a yard full of shade.That is on the South side of our yard, which is the direction of the natural drain and is the lowest part of our yard.If I were to put it on the other side of the shed, I would have to haul dirt and pour a slab from the road all the way to the fence (appx 120') I would also have to run electrical so swapping places with the utility trailer is out of the question.

Yea I keep telling myself that, but I hate to cut shade trees down. I already cut one down and hated to it. Glad that I did though, makes it easier to back in the camper with one less obstacle to dodge. Now I can drink a cold beer, back it in the spot with one hand tied behind my back.

Cut it down and leave a 30" high stump for a table and plant another one somewhere else.

Agreed. You should see my wife when the power company comes out to trim our trees around the power lines. Last time she raised so much H#$& that they had to call a supervisor to come out. She won. They wanted to cut the trees beyond their right-of-way. Nope.
