I have two and a half acres with two mesquite full grown trees and a full grown paloverde tree that need to be cut down in exchange for the wood. one mesquite tree is threatening my port-a-stall and the paloverde and other mesquite tree is next to my concrete ditch. all three need to be removed.

Mesquite is valued for smoking food, but Palo Verde is considered a "junk" wood - burns too fast and leaves no coals, and produces smoke that has objectionable and VERY persistent odor so not gaenerally considered to be suitable for interior fireplace burning. While you MIGHT find a Firewood company that would take out all three for you I doubt it would be free - more likely a Tree Removal company is what you need, especially since one is threatening a structure.

I would NOT count on getting this done for free by anyone who is insured. If signed in as a user, you can see links to other similar questions about free dead tree removal right below this answer.

Be cautious about using a Firewood company or some friend or someone from Craigslist - becuase they will likely not be insured so YOU would be assuming the risks of them damaging something, leaving a mess, or hurting themselves or someone else.
