    We had to buy a new fridge last week (week from hell, everything broke, big hassles, glad it's over) and the old fridge wouldn't keep stuff cold, the new one has frozen everything in the refrigerator, despite me turning the thermostat down past where they say is "normal". Not so bad for the diet coke, makes it a slushy, but not so great for the milk.

    When Hurricane Ike visited me...they did a lot of education about fallen trees and who was responsible. I learned that the person's property upon whichever portion of the tree landed, regardless of ownership, was the responsible party. Luckily, mine didn't fall....just took on a mean, uprooted lean toward my house. And They Only Give Me $500 per incident for removal, regardless of how many trees are down! Now, ain't that a kick in the head/wallet!! Removing a tree is no less than $1000...imagine having to remove more than one with only $500 worth of insurance. Just WOW! Sorry for your weather-drama, livin4! I feel your pain.

    Holy crud, prhoshay, I think you need to get more quotes on tree removal. I've had four trees removed on my property in Houston. I paid $300 per tree (this didn't include stump grinding because they were digging a big hole and just yanked the stumps out). But then I also had an enormous bush removed, it was at least 15 feet tall, and they did grind the stump and it was only an extra $100.
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    we had a blue ask blow down during the Sept 09 BIG BLOW - huge tree. fell on an old rickety fence. Insurance gave us over $2000 for the tree removal and another $500 for the fence. and it cost us over $2500 to get rid of the tree and stump.

    Shay-are you saying we are responsible for tree removal?

    For my area, because it's an act of God, it would be your responsibility. Sadly.

    It took 2-3 days.

    We were in a hard-hit area and it was desperate times, with everybody needing the tree removal guys. They were working around the clock, to say the least with no days off. My price included stump grinding. The guy did a really good job, but the price was ridiculous but I didn't have a choice unless I wanted "fly by night" guys. The price was also based on how big the tree was, and it was a big one. The removal guy that I used came highly recommended, and was insured. It would not have taken much for fly-by-nighters to send the tree over onto the house.


    livin4, it's my understanding that what's on your property is your responsibility, even if it's your neighbor's tree. What falls on their side is their responsibility.
    When I reread my initial post, it was confusing. Sorry!
