20+ yr old pine tree is being cut down for removal. Can you cut the top 10′ off, delimb the lower 2′ and place the top portion back into new ground and get it to continue growing?

No, but you could do that with the top 1 or 2' of the tree! This will be the only portion of the tip capable of producing roots. The smaller the cuttings, the better. Branch tips can root, as well!
