Here are a few links to previous very similar questions - more can be found in the Lawn & Garden - Tree Service link under Browse Projects, at lower left.

But bear in mind - large tree close to house + just anyone cutting them down sounds like a recipe for a well-followed but not very funny Youtube video - having anyone other than a licensed and bonded and insured Tree Service do this is an invitation to trouble, not to mention the potential liability to others if he fells it on a neighbors house or car, into utility lines, etc. - or the guy(s) cutting it down get injured doing it.

Plus most oak varieties like live and red oak, despite its reputation as a "valued wood" are actually pretty common and readily available from normal commercial sources, so unless a special variety valued for furniture like birdseye or black oak normally small numbers of trees will not be timbered for free.
