- Removing all or a majority of the limbs hanging onto your property would be considered to be an “unacceptable pruning practice.”
- Additionally, no more than 25% of the foliage should be removed within an annual growing season. Therefore, if it is greater than 25% of the tree’s foliage, we are unable to prune the tree, as doing so would cause irreversible damage and conflict with ANSI A300 standards.
- If a tree is located in the middle of you and your neighbor’s property line—the tree is co-owned. Consequently, any decisions regarding the pruning or removal of the tree need to be made in collaboration with your neighbor.
- If your neighbor’s tree falls on your property during a storm and damages your property, this is considered an ‘Act of God,’ it unfortunately becomes your responsibility to take care of the cleanup. However, it is the tree owner’s responsibility to take reasonable care of their trees to help prevent this kind of accident when possible. K&J can help you navigate the insurance claim. We will send an emergency crew out to assess the damage, remove the fallen tree, and work with your insurance company and claim representative, ensuring a quick reimbursement.
