Given the hazard in that tree...
If you didn't mind putting a lot of sweat into the thing,
I'd suggest calling someone in to get the thing _down_
then you buck/split/transport the wood yourself.
Shouldn't cost more than a hundred or two for someone with
construction equipment (like a suitably sized backhoe with chains
to support it while being cut) to get the thing cut into a couple of
sections and off the driveway.
Locally, we have a tree crew that we can hire for $20-25/hour/man (that's
Canadian dollars BTW).
It seems a trifle steep, but these guys are amazingly _good_
We hire 4 or 5 of them for a whole day every 2-3 years.
[general woodlot maintenance/improvement. Not that much tree felling
per-se. We have had them take down several "difficult" trees. Mick's
"tree monkey" act is worth the price of admission ;-)]
3 of these guys'd probably have your tree down and out of the way
in an hour or two.
If you had a chunk of good tree trunk that a woodworker might be
interested in, you might even break even.
