So I can very much feel your pain. It brings back memories I still don't like to think about.I am glad that from your window, it doesn't look so bad. Think you should take that into account when searching for solutions. You probably spend more time looking at the tree than anyone else will do. In my area, there is a Master Gardeners program. They receive lots of knowledge and education, then they are required to give time and information to helping others who need help. They are run through the county extension service office. If you have something like that program in your area, it might be helpful to contact them and see what ideas they might have. It is a free service.
