We rented a chainsaw and he went to work. He lobbed off several large limbs on the sides and then together, with a crude pulley system we tackled the main branches. I am so grateful to report that the neighbor's power lines were successfully avoided.
We have a stack of branches as tall as our house waiting for a green waste bin to arrive, but we had a great time playing arborist.
