During a recent bad storm here in PA, I had 4 evergreen trees fall down in my yard. If I cut everything up myself, will a tree company come out to take all the branches/trunks away? How much could I expect to pay? My township has a yard waste removal program but I think this is too much for them to accept.

I wish my yard waste company would handle tree debris, but nope. My yard guy is coming over today to help at my house yard, and I have to get him and the younger guy on the weekend for my lakefront lot. Boy, THAT one really got hit hard! I've got huge limbs down everywhere, but fortunately they missed my shed/shack. I know they'll be happy for the work though (not that I'll be happy about the price, lol.)

Put an ad on Craigslist for free firewood and someone will come and haul away the lengths of trunk and maybe some of the bigger branches.

My local landfill would take the rest of it. Call your landfill and ask.

This ^^^ is the first thing I'd try too before looking at other options. If you live in a place where people use firewood in winter there should be plenty of takers for free firewood. Some might even be prepared to bring chainsaws to cut up the trees where they lie so you wouldn't have to cut it up yourself.
