Tree Services would be the normal Search the List category for this, and they could dispose of them too. The disposal part of their cost (once cut up) might be cheaper than the city if the city trash department charges by the item for out-of-the-can things like this like many trash services do.

Or if suitable for firewood and in decent condition (and no insects in them), Firewood is a category to find firewood vendors who might come and take them away for you. Though read the commentaries on liability involved in having someone possibly uninsured cutting on your property - see previous questions with answers about "free" tree removal in the Lawn & Garden - Tree Services link under Browse Projects, at lower left.

If small - say not over a foot or so in diameter, a Handyman could probably handle it too even with a sawzall - possibly including hauling to the dump or a public woodpile.

On the disposal - if the city charges by the item, if suitable for firewood once you get them cut up, if you put them out on your property (not in street or sidewalk) with a FREE sign on them, they will likely disappear in fairly short order. Granted, not as fast in Jacksonville as in cooler parts of the country, but even so might disappear for free. Or once cut up, try local boy scout council or other group with a camp that might get a volunteer to take them away to use for campfire wood.
