The amount of decay (rake-handle depth) is irrelevant; it's how much sound wood there is that counts, as well as the structural integrity how much stress it has to withstand (crown size) that matters, not to mention the nature of the species. Does it represent a risk? Clearly yes. Is that risk unacceptable? Impossible to say at this distance. But it does look iffy. (Eng. idiom = questionable) If I was responsible for assessing it, I suspect I'd be very nervous about leaving it untouched; whether felling was the only viable option is another question that it's also impossible to answer from here
