This silver maple lost that main branch in a storm (surprised?) in AUGUST 2007!!! May I remind you that it is March of 2009? It's been 18+ months since it fell. In fact, I took a photo of it when it happened because the damage all around was so significant. So, this enormous stub was left to... resprout? Maybe, one can never be sure what will happen, trees are so mysterious.
All right, enough sarcasm. I'm sorry, I know the city is busy, they have lots to do. That tree is obviously an inherent hazard and should be removed, anyway. The most cost-effective way to do that would be to invite some internal rot and the tree will just remove itself! Brilliant.
