bought an $11 hatchet, and cut it down (wasn't as big as your tree.). i didnt want to spend the money (ok, didn't have the money) to have the stump ground out, so i left it there. The next spring, shoots started growing out of the stump. by the end of that year, it was 6 feet tall. a year later, it was 12 feet tall. It had the root system of an adult tree, so once it started from scratch, it grew very, very quickly.

It's a different kinf of tree than what you have, but it is possible that it will start growing back.

On the other side of my house, the neighbors had a tree next to power lines cut down, but left the stump.. that too is growing again, rapidly.

might not be a total loss if you're lucky!
