The neighbouring property owners get about a 15-minute head start, then anyone is likely to show up with a pickup truck and a chainsaw. Half an hour after the tree falls, all that is left is a pile of sawdust.
the town I live in has a City owned compost site where most people bring leaves, twigs, brush that they want to get rid of. several times a year the city has a crew to cut trees down. The city will drag them whole to this site. The tree will last about 2 hours before it's cut up and hauled away by scroungers like me...I can't count the number of times I am 20 minutes too late
