If you have a diseased or insect infested tree is on your property or a tree is dead or nearly dead, it is your responsibility as the property owner to hire a Minneapolis tree service to have it removed.
If the tree would fall onto a neighbor’s property or city property, those parties will hold you liable and require that you have the tree removed without further damaging the property it fell upon. This can be a very stressful situation in that you could be held liable for the damage the tree caused when it fell. If anyone was injured or even killed by the falling tree, you could be held liable for that as well.
The reason why a homeowner can be held responsible for a falling tree comes down to the condition of the tree before it fell. If the tree was diseased, infected by insects, rotting, cracked, dead, or contained some other structural defect, then the homeowner could be cited for not maintaining the tree or having it removed once the tree started showing signs that it was a hazard.
A healthy tree that falls due to high winds can have a different result in regards to liability. If a tree is healthy and it falls, there was nothing the homeowner could do beforehand. Perhaps the homeowner has properly maintained that tree but Mother Nature had another plan for it. Nonetheless, it is still the tree owner’s responsibility to have the fallen tree removed.
Tree And Stump Removal
When a tree is removed, our climbers literally dismantle the tree, cutting it up from top to bottom. We don’t simply cut down a tree and yell “timber.” Instead, we use the best methods possible to take the tree apart and dispose of it properly. When all that is left is the stump, we grind the stump. This is a mechanical process so we can perform it as quickly as possible. We can grind the stump down to nothing and then fill any crater left behind with screen topsoil so that grass can grow in the area, making it appear as if a tree never existed there.
If the tree is a fallen tree, then that means it has been uprooted. Uprooting of a tree causes significant property damage. As a matter of fact, fallen trees have been known to tear up entire yards because or large root systems. When that’s the case, the roots will also need to be destroyed and the giant crater left behind will need to be filled so that new grass can be planted and the yard returned to normal as the grass grows and the ground settles.
