If you’ve had a tree fall on your property due to a powerful storm, tornado, or hurricane, it can cause further damage to your home or property if you’re not careful. At T. Ryals Emergency Restoration, we offer quick, affordable, and essential tree removal services in Mississippi, to help you, your family, and your neighbors avoid any more disasters.
Who is Responsible for Fallen Tree Removal?
If a fallen tree has impacted your home, homeowners insurance generally covers damage to homes and other structures during storms. If your neighbor's tree damaged your home, your insurance provider may try and collect on your neighbor's insurance and reimburse you later.
If a tree has fallen in the street, it’s up to the local municipality or the state to remove the tree. The state is responsible for state roads, the county for county roads and municipalities for municipal roads just like with road maintenance.
If power lines have been damaged due to a fallen tree, your electric company needs to step in. Due to safety concerns, power is turned off, crews work to untangle the wires from the tree, and then power can be restored.
Should I Remove Dead Trees?
If you notice a tree might be dying, it’s wise to call in an experienced arborist for an assessment. The sooner you catch the problem, the less costly tree removal is, and the more likely you are to save it, for example:
Dead trees attract pests
Tree diseases are contagious
Dead trees are more likely to topple over, destroying your home or property
The tree’s integrity is compromised by decay and decomposition
Even if your tree has died from a situation where it wasn’t receiving the proper amount of water or nutrients, you should still consider having it removed.
How Much Does Fallen Tree Removal Cost?
When a tree falls due to factors such as a bad storm, normal aging or decay, it’s important to take action quickly. The cost can be determined by several factors, including:
The dimensions of the tree - the height and diameter
If the tree was healthy – difficult cuts add time and labor to any job
If the tree was dead or rotting – costs generally decrease if trees are easier to cut
The location of the tree – remote locations cost more
If there are any other obstacles that make removing the tree more difficult
If the branches need to be cut away, or stumps need to be removed, that may also cost more. Contact a professional service for a quick and easy estimate.
