Once there was a tree

Today I had a Norway Maple (a weed tree, that among other things doesn't shed its leaves until early December ) that was crowding my and neighbor's house, not really giving any shade because the houses are tall and close together removed. They also trimmed my sick Sycamore Maple that probably won't last long but among other things had a broken branch caught way up high that was threatening to drop on to the cars below. I should be thinking about replacement for this. Also there are several other Norway Maples in front, one of which is too close to the house.

They saved nothing for potential firewood putting everything through a chipper. When they removed my dying ash trees a few years ago they did save a lot of the wood - to make into baseball bats?
