Angies List has Search the List categories for Roof Cleaning (which inherently should include gutter cleaning because cleaning the roof puts a lot of debris in the gutters) and Gutter Cleaning (which companies also commonly do roof cleaning).

If under trees and you have a moss/lichen issue (which is likely in that case), and you are not up to getting on the roof itself, consider having them apply Moss Out powder on the roof for you while up there (I find the powder works a LOT better than the spray-on, probably because you are putting a lot more of the zinc on the roof with the powder form). You can still get (at some stores and Amazon) the 2# and 4# orange cardboard "spice bottle" type shake container which makes for easy uniform application and is about the right amount for a typical roughly 2000 or 4000SF roof respectively - otherwise the newer 6# container is available many places but lacks the easy shake dispenser so is hard to get uniform application unless you hand-broadcasdt spread or use a handheld crank-type fertilizer dispenser (which also misses the roof with a certain amount).

Here is also a previous question with answers (one of many from the Home > Gutters link under Browse Projects, at lower left) about gutter guard effectiveness with pine needles.
