*No* standing dead tree is "safe." Oh, yes, yes, yes--dead and defective
trees are "good for wildlife." BOTH statements are true.

But such trees also pose a significant problem for tree workers, and the
longer the tree remains standing (while it continues to weaken from decay),
the more dangerous it is to work on and around.

How do you ladies and gentlemen handle the overall issue?
