Sizing A Pole Light Base

I have some existing 24' steel poles with a 9" bolt circle, customer has sent me some specs on 30' aluminum poles with a 9" bolt circle, is there a formula to determine the base size, while taking into consideration wind load and height? Bases are same bolt circle but with the taller pole I want to make sure my bases are sufficent.

Or if there is no formula can someone reccomend an Engineer in the DFW area that deals in this sort of calcs.
