Question DetailsAsked on 5/18/2015

I have two trees and a stump that need to be remove from my home, however, I do not have the finance. I am willing to exchange the wood for the removal.

A few Tree Service (tree trimming/cutting) companies cut deals with firewood or lumber companies for reuse of wood they cut and give only a modest discount in price for that, but your would have to call around to find one that does.

For only 2 trees a commercial wood company would not be interested - some Firewood companies will come out and cut and remove trees and stumps (cut off just above ground level, not ground below ground surface) for free. The risk with that is unless you pay them at least a modicum amount and they are insured (and have workman's comp as appropriate) you are taking a lot of risk if they fell it on your house or your neighbors or through a powerline, or if they get hurt or hurt someone. Also, they want only the firewood quality wood, so are not interested in or usually equipped to remove or mulch the smaller stuff and leaves, and will not be interested in raking up the debris and sawdust and disposing of it like a tree removal service will.

Here are a couple of more detailed answers I gave to that question in the past -
