Getting it off the house is a priority, as you may imagine. (see the post below for more photos.) Mr. K spoke to the insurance company today, and was told to get estimates for tree removal and hauling away. I'm concerned about the chimney, since it seems to be held up by the tree alone, and removing the tree may allow the chimney to fall. If it falls, the damages could be much greater than they are right now - so it is imperative that the company that removes the tree is capable of shoring up the chimney beforehand. Wish us luck.
