Well, i won..  but got hit in the head by a limb and sent to the ground hard ( it didnt go the direction it should have and fell over my fence in to neighbor's back yard.. and as i was trying to flip it around to get it out of her gate it came down on me instead.  took me out + 2 trash cans. )

And cutting what was left back some more, one of those limbs ( about 8" dia ) decided to break early and came crashing down on a spare car part i had stored back in that corner of the yard to use when i get around to repairing the little car.  ~300 bucks to replace that part if i can find one. Not looked yet, they used to be hard to find . ( not as bad as rear tail lights which are basically unicorns at this point, but still scarce )

And my foot still hurts a little from the injury from the other peach tree earlier this summer when a storm took out its largest branch.  

 

I am not fond of peach trees now.

If you had a woodchipper (or a beaver on crack), you could make
mulch.  I highly recommend the woodchipper method, as a beaver on
crack gets messy fast.

Woodchipper wins for efficiency but the beaver on crack would be so much more satisfying to watch.

Sounds like he's trying to do it without spending any money, which is admirable and probably what I would try to do. I've rented big machines and had a lot of fun with them, but I have to admit a woodchipper is pretty scary. Maybe negotiate with an arborist for a "dispose only" rate?

By the way ... fruit wood is excellent for smoking poultry and pork. If you have a smoker, definitely save some for that.

I wasn't opposed to spending some cash, i even called 2 locals to come do it for me. Just wasn't interested in the hassle renting a chipper for the day when i can do it myself.   ( or spending the time to get a trailer hitch installed on the jeep )

And ya large chippers are scary dangerous, but doubt i would get a large one anyway.

Even if you could figure that out, good luck communicating it to the cats.
