Monday’s damaging winds took down many trees across western Massachusetts some even landing on people’s properties and homes.
But what if that tree fell from your neighbor’s yard?
22News spoke with the Insurance Center of New England to find out what you should do if a tree damages your property.
“If you have a tree that hit your house, whether it’s from your yard or your neighbor’s yard, it’s covered under your policy,” President and CEO Bill Trudeau explained. “So it’d be subject to your deductible, and then you wanna get an expert to remove the tree.”
Trudeau also suggests that residents plan ahead.
