Making the best of a fallen tree

Recently my wonderful privacy-creating spruce (or fir, not sure) toppled over across my yard.

Looking on the positive side, this creates new opportunities for my gardening. For starters it opens up more space and allows more sun to reach my indoor plants.

How else can I make the most of this fallen tree? I have a friend who might be able to use the wood, but it wasn't a very big tree. The bulk of it is branches and needles.
Any suggestions for a new gardener seeking to create an organic backyard?

You might try planting mushrooms plugs in it, I don't know if this will work but it is worth a try.

i cut my cedar that had to come down (too close to the house, hitting the eaves, planted by the previous owners) into chunks and used it as mulch. and i layed the branches (with the needles still on) over places i wanted to kill the grass/weeds.
