    I have a similar problem with my neighbor's tree, which is a very old, diseased pine with a huge weak spot on the tree faces my house. I have talked with an insurance agent and the law reads in SC, that a tree falling is the responsibility of the person incurring the damage UNLESS the tree owner has been warned. Today I am writing a letter to them, and sending it out return receipt requested.

    I'd like to find out their insurance company's name and notify them. Allstate, another neighbor's insurance, required them to remove the tree before they would rewrite the policy. That's another option. If you have heard of any other alternatives, please let me know. Thanks and good luck.

      Trees Law and Legal Definition


      Trees on a neighbor's property may encroach onto your property. State law varies, but generally, you may trim branches that overhang onto your property, as long as doing so doesn't damage the tree. You must get your neighbor's permission to enter their property to cut branches. If your neighbor's tree fell on your fence, yard, house, garage or car as a result of a storm, the neighbor has no obligation to remove the portion of the tree on your side of the property line and is not responsible for the damage the tree caused, unless they have reason to know the tree is dead, damaged, or has notice that it constitutes a threat. Some jurisdictions have recognized that the natural growth of trees includes shade, invading roots, leaves, and overhanging boughs, and that liability is reasonable when there is "sensible damage," such as a damaged roof, not mere debris from a healthy tree.
