Frequently Asked Questions
Does homeowner’s insurance cover tree removal?
If a tree or limb has fallen due to lack of care and upkeep, the responsibility falls on the owner of the property to pay for the damage.
If a tree has succumbed to natural causes (specified by your policy), the insurance connected to the property the tree fell on should cover at least part of the removal costs. Insurance doesn’t cover voluntary tree removal or trees that fall away from buildings or driveways.
Does homeowner’s insurance cover tree damage to my home?
Yes, if a tree fell due to natural causes, your homeowner’s insurance will likely cover at least part of the damage to your home. The amount of coverage will depend on your insurance plan. Insurance typically does not cover damage to a neighbor’s home.
Does homeowner’s insurance cover preventative tree removal?
No. Homeowner’s insurance covers sudden tree collapse and accidental damage due to some kinds of weather. If you need to take preventative action, the burden of the cost falls on you.
How much does insurance pay for tree removal?
This depends on your insurance, but many policies have a $500 - $1,000 limit per tree before you begin to pay out-of-pocket. If your debris-removal coverage, which includes fallen trees, is calculated as a percentage of your total damage, the amount you owe could be higher or lower. You may want to increase your tree insurance coverage if your property has several trees or older, larger trees.
If my tree falls on a neighbor's house who is responsible?
If the damage happened due to a storm, your neighbor is responsible for covering the cost of repairs and removal. If the tree fell because of a lack of care and upkeep on your end, it may be your responsibility to pay for removal and repairs.
Trees are beautiful, but they can also prove hazardous when the weather gets rough. Maintain and remove your trees as necessary to prevent damage:
- After the storm blows through, contact Monster Tree Service’s emergency tree removal teams to get hazards like fallen limbs and trees off your property.
- Trust after-storm plant care to our experienced storm damage cleanup crews, who trim damaged trees and remove plant debris.
- Prepare for the next storm that blows through with cabling and bracing to reinforce your trees’ weak spots.
