Property Responsibility for Tree Damage in Virginia

Legal Perspective: In the state of Virginia, the fiscal responsibility for tree damage on a person's property often falls on the owner of the property that the tree falls onto, rather than the property where the tree is rooted. This means that if your neighbor's tree extends into your yard, it becomes your responsibility to address the issue and have it removed to protect your property. Generally, the neighbor's insurance is not obligated to cover this cost.

Assistance during Emergencies: During emergencies when tree damage occurs, we are here to help. We gladly accept work from insurance companies, offering deferred payment options to assist homeowners in promptly resolving tree-related issues and protecting their properties.
