DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

If you've got trees down or leaning in your yard, volunteer groups want to know.

Crews have been working to collect addresses where work still needs to be done. 

If you have a tree in your yard, call 800-451-1954 and leave a message. 

Teresa Knight is a volunteer coordinator. 

She gets the calls and sends crews to specific addresses. 

She said it may take time, but if you call, volunteers will help you clear your yard. 

"There's a lot of work that's been done, but there is a lot of work that still needs to be done. But we need heavy equipment and we need specialty people to come in and help use get this finished and cleared up for these homeowners," said Knight.

Even if you have a leaning tree that you aren't sure about, give the number a call. 

Volunteers say they will keep working until all the trees are clear.
