Tree cut down, lands on neighbor’s home

An Amherst, New York man says he does not know which company cut down a tree that landed on his neighbor’s home.

The homeowner had hired a contractor to remove the tree, but that contractor apparently subcontracted the work out to an unnamed entity. After the subcontractor felled the tree on top of the neighbor’s home, the crew fled. Police are still trying to identify those responsible, according to a report.

Ultimately, the homeowner had to hire a reputable tree service company to safely remove the tree from his neighbor’s roof.

The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) recommends working with qualified tree care companies to avoid accidents and liability issues. Read our article, Homeowner Responsibilities & Liabilities, to learn how to protect your assets and identify disreputable tree care companies.

Homeowners can also search for TCIA members in their ZIP Code, many of which are TCIA Accredited, to ensure their tree care project is completely correctly and efficiently.
