Am I covered for trees falling?

You are covered for the cost of removing any part of a tree that has or is causing damage to your home. However, the cost of removing or disposing of tree stumps, 'at risk' trees, or branches of trees that have not damaged your home will not be covered.

If a tree or part of a tree from your property is impacting a neighbour’s home, then it would be up to your neighbour to lodge a claim with their insurer or arrange removal of that part of the tree themselves.

It is important to note that you are not covered for loss or damage caused by the lopping or felling of trees when this is performed or authorised by you, your family, or a household member, unless completed by a professional tree removal business.
