Oak Logs - Near Sacramento CA

I have a friend who took down a large oak tree in his back yard recently. The small branches have been disposed of, and most of the branches & stuff have been cut into firewood, but there are three large logs left, each approximately 12 feet long. I don't know what species yet, but I'm guessing it's Blue Oak, which is the prevalent species around here. Is there a market for these logs? Is the wood useful?

"The blue oak isn't used in manufacturing because of its crooked growth habit. But it is used as fence posts and fuel wood. Native Americans made meal from blue oak acorns, and used the acorn leachate for dying baskets. The wood was used to make bowls."
