Emergency Tree Removal Services

When it comes to tree emergencies, time is of the essence. Whether it's a fallen tree blocking a road, a hazardous limb hanging precariously, or a tree threatening to collapse onto a property, swift action is crucial to ensure the safety of people and property. Emergency tree removal services are teams of professionals who can handle urgent tree-related situations promptly and efficiently. In this article, we will explore the importance of emergency tree services and highlight the key aspects of their work.

When does insurance cover emergency tree removal services?

As a general rule insurance companies will pay to remove trees that have fallen on your house. Below are some of the stipulations and questions to ask to clarify whether your tree removal will be covered.

Where did the tree fall? From your neighbor’s property or from your property?

In almost all cases, trees that fell from your neighbor on to your house will be covered by your insurance company to remove it. However, if the tree was dead, your insurance company may put off maintenance on the part of your neighbor. If this situation arises, it’s highly likely that your insurance company will seek reimbursement from your neighbor’s insurance company for the expenses of removing the tree from your property. On the other hand if your neighbors tree is alive, then in most cases your insurance company will consider the incident an “ act of God” and will not attempt to collect from the insurance company of your neighbor.

Is the tree alive or dead?

When trees fall on modified structures on the property, such as houses or fences, and cause damage, an insurance company typically considers one final criterion to cover the removal cost: Is the tree alive or dead? In most cases, insurers view dead tree removal as property maintenance. However, if you were aware of the situation but postponed maintenance, the insurance company will deny coverage. The details of this can get nuanced as the insurance company would have to prove that you had prior knowledge to the tree being dead, as well as prove that you chose not to do anything about it. This gets tricky and expensive to prove and oftentimes if it may go to court, they may just cover the cost of removing the tree rather than fighting a battle.

To determine if the services are covered, you may need to answer these questions. 1. Did the tree hit anything? 2. Did you modify the structure on the property? 3. Did the property sustain damage?

Typical insurance policies cover modified structures on the property. One important part of ensuring coverage for your claim is answering the question: Was there damage? To restore your property to its original condition, insurance policies typically create a contractual obligation. If a tree fell against your property but did not cause any damage, it may not be covered. However, defining “damage” can be subjective.

So, you had a tree fall and hit your house?
You probably have a lot of questions. Below we have detailed out some of the common questions and main issues that you're going to face in filing your insurance claim, and the basic steps of how to get through the process.

Step 1
File your claim -If a tree hits your house and causes damage, the first step is to initiate the claim and obtain your claim number.

Step 2
Research and find a reputable tree service with experience in handling insurance claims. Therefore, there's a big difference between cutting down a tree and randomly assigning a price that may or may not be covered by your insurance vs. navigating the steps of an insurance claim, understanding what and what will not be covered, and making sure that every I is dotted and t's are crossed. In addition, you want to hire a tree service who Has experience in both of these processes.

Step 3
Hire the tree service and get safe! The number one priority is to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe. Any tree service who has experience with insurance claims can tell you that competitive bids are not of the utmost priority. Also, insurance will cover the cost of removing the tree from the structure as long as the pricing is reasonable and customary. Questions about what your insurance company will cover?

Step 4
Pay the tree service and get reimbursed from your insurance company minus your deductible. In most cases, tree services require payment upon completion. After tree removal and roof tarp installation, you pay the tree service. Your insurer reimburses your expenses. The insurance company will tell you to make sure to keep receipts. This is crucial in submitting your costs and getting reimbursed. Also, make sure that you keep photos of the entire process as your insurance company may need that for documentation purposes. Lastly, insurance often withholds the deductible from the first claim check, covering tree service and tarping fees.

Will insurance cover the cost of grinding the stump?

This depends. Remember, your insurance policy is typically a legal binding contract to cover modified structures on the property. Most of the time, when a tree falls over, the stump does not interfere or interact with any modified structures on the property. However this is not always the case. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, an uprooted stump will damage underground utilities such as sprinkler lines, underground cables, plumbing, or sewer systems, or disrupt a patio, pathway, or fence. If an uprooted stump disrupts a modified structure on the property, grinding the stump becomes necessary. Insurance companies typically cover the cost to restore the property to its original state. Insurance companies will typically cover stump grinding in these cases. Learn more about insurance coverage here.
