Tree Related - A City owned tree has caused damage to my property. What should I do?
Contact the City's Forestry department to have the tree inspected or removed. Contact your personal property insurance company, as you may have coverage for the damage. Alternatively, submit your claim in writing to the City's Risk Management unit using the "How to file a claim" procedure.
If the City's Forestry department's investigation confirms that a large limb or tree trunk was in good condition, with no obvious exterior signs of decay or structural flaws, the City will not assume any liability. Very often, tree separation is weather related.
