This is the second time using Driscoll, and we are pleased with the service. Michael is knowledgeable and punctual. We had eight trees trimmed, and they left no traces of the work in our yard. Polite workers. Reasonably priced as well. Highly recommend.

I began using Driscoll Tree Service back in 2021 and was so impressed with their knowledge and quality of work, I have only hired Driscoll Tree Service since!  Just a few weeks ago, my large oak tree needed a trim and once again it was a great job!!

Guide to Tree Removal Insurance

When a tree falls in the forest, it is nobody’s problem. However, the repercussions can be dire if a tree falls on your property. Storms and strong winds often cause tree-related damage, especially if the tree is unhealthy or dead. The most effective way to prevent safety risks is by hiring a tree care company to inspect your trees and regularly provide the care they deserve. If a tree is severely damaged, it is best to remove it from the premises.

Tree removal can be expensive, even if you have homeowners’ insurance or other types of coverage. Before hiring a tree service to remove a risky tree in your backyard safely, check with your coverage provider to ensure they cover tree removal services. Homeowners’ policies usually cover the damages following a fallen tree, but most coverage providers exempt tree removal services. Consult a professional tree care company to learn more about tree removal services and insurance.

What Most Policies Cover

Many people with homeowners’ insurance assume their policy should cover tree removal services. This is usually the case if you didn’t cause the tree to fall, but there are several limitations property owners need to know before filing a claim for tree removal. Insurance providers look for reasons to deny payouts, hence the need to work with a trusted tree care company.

Homeowners’ insurance protects structures on your premises, including your house, detached garage, and shed. If the cause of tree damage is harsh weather or strong winds, your policy is likely to cover the cost of repairs and replacements. However, this only works if the tree was healthy before the incident. A tree in poor health already poses a safety hazard, and policyholders may deem you responsible and refuse to pay out. Insurance companies expect homeowners to maintain a healthy and safe lawn; failing to prune or trim trees is considered negligence.

Another incident that your homeowners’ insurance may not cover is when a tree falls and doesn’t cause damage. This is frustrating and inconvenient for homeowners since mature trees weigh thousands of pounds. In addition, a fallen tree on your property that damages neighboring property can’t be covered by your insurance and can open you up to legal action.
