What kind of tree is this?

A customer wants me to dig up these two trees pictured. I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of trees these are. There are large roots growing on the surface of the ground from the tree which have been shifting the rocks around the trees.

From what I can tell it seems like it was a mistake to put these trees in this small yard with the roots the way they are.

Any ideas are appreciated!!

Cut the tops off with about 4-5 ft of trunk left. Take a chainsaw and put a notch on the back side about 4-6 inches off the ground. Take your loggers chain wrap it around the tree TWICE and then hook the chain onto itself near the trunk. Put the other end of the chain on the hitch of your truck and start tugging. When it starts coming out of the ground whack the roots with an axe.

I would only put one tree in that front yard...two of any variety seems like some serious over kill for that small of an area.
This method would look like the "Hillbilly Tree Service" You'll probably do more damage to your truck than it's worth. I would cut the trees at the 4 foot high mark. Throw the limbs into my chipper. Take my backhoe over there and dig out the stumps. load them into the dump truck, take them to the dump...$700
a yard that small does not need 2 oak trees
Those are probably FHA trees...They are required for an FHA mortgage. Zoning probably also require two trees for each house.
