Gap toothed front yard

Our yard seems to loose 1 large tree a year. We lost a large, healthy maple in a thunderstorm last summer. We lost this tree more recently. The large looming leafless tree keeps threatening to fall. Perhaps this means we will have treeless shrubbery in short order; and a whole bunch of firewood to show for it...

This is not that really cool tree that you have in your yard, is it?

No... not the magnolia tree. Thank goodness! I think it was an elder? tree? The box elder bugs or some other type of insect seems to have made itself at home in the trees in our yard. But it still puts a dent in the green stuff by the road.
