You can find a lot of previous similar questions with answers in the Lawn & Garden - Tree Service link under Browse Projects, at lower left.

You can find people to do it for free, but be careful of liability issues if they are not licensed, bonded and insured - especially if an out-of-control felling would take out utility lines, land on neighbor property, damage vehicles or buildings or such. Also, allowing commercial people to come cut and take wood for free, in addition to potential direct liability, can sometimes result in loss of your own homeowner insurance coverage - so always safer to have a tree service or licensed/bonded/insured firewood contractor come and at least fell it and buck to handleable pieces for firewood,, even if you only pay them $1 to put them under a contract to provide the service to you - that at least removes a large portion of the risk. Having them (or you do it) move the wood and stack just on your side of the street/sidewalk easement, as opposed to paying for chipping/removal, can also reduce a lot of the risk - then put a FREE sign on it. Will normally disappear in a day or two if suitable for firewood.

Also, if they are not working under contract to you (and giving you some preotection with their insurance), you are generally not covered for any damge to property from the felling, dragging of tree portions across yard, or cleanup of debris left behind. "Give" someone the wood, and without a written contract typically you will find they take the firewood size pieces but leave rotten sections, branches and twigs and leaves, and do no cleanup behind themselves.
