Hey Mark, if you have three years, why not cut the trees this coming winter (when the sap is down), peel them and get them off the ground to dry for a summer or two? Then they'll be lighter and, I think, less likely to rot when put into the ground.
I also forgot about the option of girdling the trees I want to use, either the spring or fall prior to use so they'd get 6-12 months standing to dry out, without being on the ground or quite so obvious.
Sorry Gerald no I don't, boulders that size are serious business, anything man-made downhill of something that size is toast if it rolls. It would be easier to build to the side and avoid it in my opinion, but I'm no geologist or engineer!
