You can expect us to contact your insurance agent, explain the situation, get approval, and bill your insurance company directly if possible to avoid out-of-pocket costs. With that in mind, it’s important to know these four general insurance guidelines when it comes to storm damage:
- Insurance policies typically cover all or part of the cost to remove trees or branches from your home or other structure/building.
- Insurance policies do not cover trees and branches that fall on lawns, driveways, or bushes.
- If your healthy tree or its branches fall on a neighbor’s property during a storm you are not responsible for the damage. The neighbor’s homeowner’s insurance will cover clean-up and repairs to their property.
- If your dead tree or its branches fall on a neighbor’s property, you will be held responsible for the damages due to negligence. Protect your financial well-being by removing dead trees and dead branches. Keep healthy trees pruned to avoid property damage or bodily injury.

Stump Removal Rockville, MD
After a tree falls or is removed, the stump that remains can be unsightly and dangerous. Ed’s Tree Service removes stumps with minimum disruption to the surrounding yard. Our goal is to leave your yard more beautiful and hazard-free.
At Ed’s Tree Service, we have the right skills, machines, equipment, and expertise to remove your stump efficiently and effectively. It’s our environmentally friendly practice to let the resulting mulch replenish your soil once the stump has been removed.
Most tree owners don’t realize how important it is to feed their trees. Micronutrients are vital to avoid malnourished trees. In populated areas, trees must contend with pollution and soil depletion over the course of their long lives. Fertilization can give them the boost they need to stay strong and healthy.
We recommend the Mauget Tree Injection Process. This liquid fertilizer is injected directly into the sap wood at the base of your tree. We use a Stemix micro-injector to deliver a mineral formula designed to stimulate growth of the tree foliage, trunk, and root system.
We drill a small hole (only 3/16 of an inch in diameter and no deeper than ¾ of an inch) every 6 inches around the base of the tree to insert the fertilizer capsules. Because the puncture wounds are tiny, the tree recovers quickly and the nutrients are efficiently absorbed into the tree’s sap stream and circulated throughout the tree. We recommend watering the tree when it is injected to help the process along.
