Help Remove Tree Debris

Hello, Im Joann. I became a young homeowner at the age of 20. My new home was purchased 07/31. Although I loved every aspect of my new home, there came a very expensive problem. In the front yard of my new home, sat a huge, old, 70+ ft pine tree. Its branches branched out over several homes and power lines. It was then determined, by the local power company, that the tree was a hazard to the neighborhood, my home & the powerlines. On 09/16, the power company sent off a 3rd party tree service company to cut down the tree. As I was happy to see the tree come down, little did I know that the debris cleanup would fall on me as the tree was sitting in on my property. After several days of working on this huge tree, I am left with HUGE tree trucks, branches, pine leaves and pine cones in my yard. The work is unbearable for me & my family to do alone. I have called my home insurance company & there is nothing that can do because i’m the tree as not fallen on our home. I am asking for help to have the tree debris cleaned up out the yard before the city begins to fine me, which would cause a bigger problem. Any amount would help & be greatly appreciated. Thank you. :)
