DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Folks in Worth County are expressing their thanks to Albany chainsaw crews. 

Last Monday a large oak tree fell just in front of an elderly couple's home in the Woodcrest subdivision.

Now, it's been completely removed thanks to volunteers from Dougherty County, who went over after dark to help the couple. 

All of the debris was put on the street.

The man living in the house said it was too much for him to do alone. 

But he wasn't the only one whose home was damaged. 

Nearly every home in the neighborhood had big pine trees down.

Albany chainsaw crews went to a number of houses in the neighborhood to help with tree removal. 

Erin Harrison is a Worth County resident, who has been helping coordinate cleanup efforts. 

"They're very thankful," said Harrison. "I've gotten text messages and Facebook messages expressing gratitude. They want to see how they can help make donations towards the funds to keep these crews going."

Folks from Moultrie also came down with their equipment. 

Although the debris removal is much closer to being done in Worth County, there are still several homes that need help.

If you want to help, send a message through the Worth County storm recovery group
