        It's been snowing here since last night. I think we already have about 2" and it's still lightly snowing.

      Good morning all.

                      kate. I was reading yesterday about your problem with the property insurance company and your tree. I rank insurance companies with used car salesmen at bottom of ladder in sleaziness. Down here, they don't want to pay for anything. The insurance contracts are 1 million pages long, full of gobbledygook and exclusions. We do have a pretty good system of public adjusters who can take on the case and often get you the money you deserve. Do you have such a thing where you live?

                        kate you really need to appeal this. I have never heard of a tree falling and damage not being covered because of the direction it fell? If you have coverage it should be covered regardless of the direction it fell. Sounds like they are just trying to blow you off hoping you won't appeal it. You paid for the coverage so appeal it and make them pay for the damage!

                        kate if your property is covered and the tree grows on your property then any damage done by that tree is covered. When I went through this over a decade ago I appealled and they paid AND I got 5k for the 100 foot tree. The damage is not only covered but so is the loss of the tree itself. Hold them accountable and make them pay!
