You probably want to talk with the excavator/grader first and see how he wants the trees removed (IE how much stump needs to be removed so he can easily pull them out).
If you go the route of cutting, then hiring someone else to do the excavation/grading let me know. I'd be willing to come down and haul some of the wood out of your way to use as fire wood.
