Selling/Removing Yard Trees
The wood, if there is any that is long enough and straight enough to be sawn into lumber, may be of interest to a local woodworker. However, nobody is going to "pay" you to remove your yard tree.
Check your local yellow pages for certified arborists, or check online with the Illinois Arborist Association:

Best of luck!
