If My Tree Falls on a Neighbor’s House, Who Is Responsible?

When a tree falls onto a neighbor’s home, the damage can be quite extensive. If the tree falls from your property, it becomes a very stressful situation. Second only to concerns over everyone’s safety, the financial onus comes into question.

You might wonder, “If my tree falls on a neighbor’s house, who is responsible?” In most cases, your neighbor’s insurance company will pay for damages. Typically, you will not be responsible for damages if the tree fell from forces of nature, such as a weather event. However, if the tree fell because of your negligence, you could be financially responsible.

If there is negligence, such as dead limbs you failed to remove yet knew about, your neighbor’s insurance company might legally pursue subrogation. This could put the cost of damages on your insurer and, possibly, on you.
