Tree removal can be a tricky subject when it comes to home insurance in Buena Vista, VA. Here’s what makes it sort of complicated: If you buy a home insurance policy through Stonewall Grace Insurance, or any agency, your insurance provider covers your home, they cover much of the property you have on the plot of land on which your home sits.
But, they don’t cover the land itself, and they don’t cover trees, bushes, and shrubs on the land.
So it essentially breaks down like this:
- If a tree falls onto your home, then removing the tree will be considered to be part of the covered damages. After all, the repair crew can’t get to your roof to fix it until they pull the tree off of your house.
- If a tree simply falls over after a storm and lands on your lawn, it might not have damaged any covered property. It may have broken an underground pipe, but that’s typically going to be an expense for the city to worry about.
Essentially, if you get lucky and the tree doesn’t hit anything, then it’s not your insurer’s problem.
Here’s the good news: There are plenty of people who would be willing to remove the tree for free if they can keep the firewood. So ask around before you call a cleanup crew.
