Tree Service is one Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed vendors to do this. Some Firewood companies (especially if not in their prime late summer/fall season of preparing wood and delivering to customers) also do this.

Or you can buy a splitting wedge and sledgehammer and get some real exercise over the course of some weeks (check out videos on how not to smash yourself in the process), or rent an electro-hydraulic splitter for typically about $50-75/day (for small logs up to maybe 6-8 inches) or more like $75-150/day for a towed gasoline powered one (for large logs). With a few exceptions splitting goes a lot easier if the wood is well cured, and of course split wood soaks up a LOT more water in a woodpile.
