I would contact nurseries and greenhouse operations which actually grow large shrubs and trees (your local plant center may be able to give you names of local ones). They sometimes will come out with a tree clamshell(which extracts the trees and root bulb intact) - though usually they do not want to come and take it to their nursery - they want to get it when they have a specific job or customer ready to receive it to avoid doulbe transplanting.

Looks like the wholesale value of the trees is about $400-500 - so considering they will have to spend several hundreds at least coming and digging it up, don't expect any significant payment for it, if any. You might be lucky and get them to backfill the hole as part of the deal.

Be sure about what damage a tree bucket removal truck might cause in taking them out - tracking or tearing up lawn (especially if wet or sloping), breakage of sprinkler lines, etc - if those are risks might be best to just have it taken out by a tree service and the stump ground down (though would cost you probably a couple to several hundreds per tree). Ditto maybe if behind a fence where a large truck cannot drive to to remove them.
