You can find a large number of similar questions with answers about issues related to this (including potential liability to you if someone removinbg your tree geats hurt or fells it on power lines or your fence or such) in the Lawn and Garden - Tree Service link in Browse Projects, at lower left.

One other possibility - if it is a "hazard" tree threatening electric lines, especially if dead/dying or tilting or getting into the wires, the electric utility might remove it, or at least cut it down, for free. Their rules vary by utility - some will remove only part of a tree getting into the wires, some will top a tree but not take it all if not necessary to get it clear of lines, some will fell a hazard tree but not clear away the debris, some will fell and stack the debris neatly in the utility easement for you to remove later, some will remove the whole thing including chipping the entire tree and hauling it away for disposal.
