Could look into an Alaskan chainsaw mill and use a really long bar? Would be slow going but if it s only one tree.

That’s what I did for some really big maple. I posted an online add on Kijiji/Craigslist. It took a couple months to find someone, but it has worked well so far. Expect about an average of 1 hour per big slab with setup time, cutting, moving, refueling etc. We found that with 2 guys, actual cut time was about 15-20 minutes per cut. It’s not light work though moving 300lb slabs.
