The insurance company should persue this and the property owner will be held accountable. It has happened in my neighborhood on several occasions.

A friend I knew had a similar problem. His insurance company kept ho humming around so he saw a lawyer. Cost him about $50. The lawyer sent a letter to the landowner threatning a lawsuit and he removed the trees. If you can prove the trees were a threat before they fall it is not an act of god. I don't know all the details but It sounds similar enough that my first step would be to see a lawyer before any more damage occurs.

I'm trying to remember how this works as far as insurance companies go. If there is no damage to personal property, I don't think the insurance companies give a crap. State Farm considers it debris and you're lucky if you get any $$ to remove it.

Just say to heck with it and plant some Kudzu on their places. That'll teach'um Pic.

Tree would have to fall on home, building, personal property etc for coverage for cut up and haul away.


Tree's on adjoining property (unless dead) fall on your property, unfortunately it is your problem them.

Hopefully your neighbors will step up and help maintain their property.

Okay, well... another storm... another tree down.

I preface this by saying that I will not do anything about it except cut the thing up but I have just about had it.

Two sides of my yard are ajoined to two properties, both a couple hundred acres. Both owners are out of the area and they lease it to farmers.

Over the last three years I have had seven mature trees fall from their properties to mine. One damaged both our vehicles (of course they never responded to my calls).

None of this would matter except they fall over my driveway or on top of or next to my shop. Others have fallen in my wooded areas and I could care less.

It's getting old! Has anyone ever had to contend with this or do you know the law?


Already dead trees, or live ones that ended up on your place?

The way I understand it is that live trees fall and are the "responsibility" of the person whose land it hits....dead trees are on the person whose land they fell from.

I hooked a logging chain to it and drug it to the middle of his backyard and unhooked it. I figured it was on his yard and now his problem. He eventually got it cut up.


You have every right to trim the branches that overhang your property line. Tough teats when it's completely on his land.

call homeowners and cut a deal where you get paid to clean up the mess. if they become difficult to reason with , call an attorney, they are responsible for their trees. Good luck.

I've delt with this before and contacted a TN atty. Take pics of the live trees that may cause damage in the future and send him a registered letter/pics asking him to trim or remove the trees that could cause damage to your property.

If he does not, you'll have a good case if damage occurs.
