That usually considers fracture at the base. Harder to use when the area of 
concern is higher up....but possible.
Treecalc is an awesome and under used tool...

Hi Rupert

Put your remaining stem through TreeCalc.

It'll give you a starting point Safety Factor.  You'll then have a 
conservative measured assessment, that'll be free of all hidden noise, bias, 
and error that are endemic to qualitative opinions about what is difficult 
and complicated decision.

Cheers
