Life-Threatening

If there’s an immediate threat to life-safety, call 9-1-1.

If a tree falls into your home:

  • Get everyone safely out of your house. Then, use your cellphone or go to a neighbor’s house and call 9-1-1. 
  • Stay away from the home until public safety employees can access your home for structural safety (as well as ensuring your utilities are OK or should be turned off.) 
  • Only after all of these safety measures have taken place should you call your insurance company.

 

Power Lines

Roads

Private Property

Removal is the property owner’s responsibility. We suggest direct communication with your neighbor, then we recommend contacting a professional, licensed arborist to inspect the tree. The county has no authority in civil issues like downed trees.
