We have a giant spruce? tree in front of our 1840 house. Years ago it was hit by ball lightning and the top was taken off (along with our center chimney cap). In a storm worn electric lines damaged some branches. Both top and branches were looked at by local arborist. Very rough bark and lots of sap that is white. Now on one area carpenter ants are piling up light colored wood dust at the bottom of the tree. This 140+ year old tree could destroy the house if it toppled in a storm. During Irene I retreated to the farthest corner of the house from the tree and stayed up all night checking things.
What's the right thing to do now?
