120. Blue....leave it the way it is and see if it comes back next Spring...but,
make sure they know that if it doesn't come back you want compensation. It looks like they left a large part of it and maybe that will sprout.

I know this is devastating ...we had something similar with a different tree years ago and never got over it, but some species of trees or large shrubs can come back amazingly strong.

Google the name of the tree and see what kind of pruning it can take. I'm not familiar with May Day Tree but we have crepe myrtles here that grow up to 50 feet and they can be pruned back to a stump and grow twice the size and full the next Summer. It's almost impossible to kill them. There are large shrubs that will come back the same.

Google and at least that will give you some information in your dealing with the Power Co. or even if you find it will come back it will help you with the angst. The one part in your photo does look like it might have a chance.
