How Trees Can Impact Homeowners Negatively

Most people view trees as a natural asset to their property, as it adds shade, beauty, and protection from the elements.  But what many people don’t realize is that trees can cause quite a bit of damage that ends up either costing the homeowner a lot of time and money, as well as insurance companies that have to payout on claims.  Taking care of your trees can mitigate the negatives.  For instance, if you have trees that are diseased or ill-maintained, they could possibly fall over and damage your property.  And if your tree falls on your neighbor’s property, their insurance company will go after your insurance company to get reimbursed, which means potentially higher premiums for you.  Worst case scenario – your homeowners insurance company can deny you coverage.
