FEMA to pick up trees damaged from Irene?

Today I was working cleaning up after Hurricane Irene and two guys came by want to clean up the trees that I got down. They will cut them up and stack them on the side of the road for FEMA to pick up . Anybody know if this is true? We have three large pine trees on the ground and two more due to damage that need to be cut down.

After Hurricane Ike, Harris County Precinct 4 picked up all the tree debris that was stacked along the streets in our neighborhood (NW of Houston, TX). Whether or not they used a FEMA grant to do this, I frankly don't know.

Here in Indiana a tornado made a mess of things last May. Some owners cut up the trees, piled them along the highway, and the state highway dept. came along with dump truck, an high-lift loader, and removed any such debris. Those home-owners that hired tree removal were covered by their homeowners insurance- BUT, they had to wait for the insurance adjusters approval first.
Those that had many trees downed by the tornado had a logging company come in and buy the logs, then hired the tree trimmings removed.

I need the trees cut up and the lot cleaned , but it nothing that can't wait. I bought this lot over 25 years ago, just to keep someone from building too close to us. I would love to find a small logger that would take the trees. There is some nice pulp wood in these trees and I got eight large ones.

My FEMA manager friend replied;

Absolutely not. FEMA doesn't pick up debris. We often pay the local, county, state to reimburse them for debris removal but we don't remove it. We don't have anyway to do that. However, the debris must be placed on the right of way because the locals won't come on private property to get it.

No trees were harmed in the transmission of this message, but millions of electrons were temporarily inconvenienced.

Eight trees would not be worth their time, unfortunately. Or atleast that is what we end up getting told here in ne PA.

You are probably right. We use to have small loggers around here, with a 2 ton truck, winch and chain saw. I guess those days are long gone.
