    The title of your post made me think of an old Harley I used to have.

    Normally, in my experience, they are too busy to mess with it unless they are doing the whole job. But, you might be able to get one who is near to sneak over and shake your trees without the whole job. Otherwise, wait for Mother Nature to blow them down.
