Additional Resources and Tips for Fallen Trees and Homeowners:

Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner
Homeowners policy provides limited coverage for tree damage.

The insurer will pay a maximum of $500.00 to remove fallen trees caused by wind (only if the tree damages covered property).

If the tree does no damage to covered property, there is no coverage.
www.oci.ga.gov

You are responsible for paying for damage when the fallen tree shows signs that the tree was dead or had a disease and has fallen unto your neighbor's property. 

If the tree shows no signs of death or disease, then the neighbor is responsible for covering the expense for the damages (rural landowners have their own set of rules and laws).

Save evidence or photographs to convey that the tree was alive and during the time the tree fell on your neighbor's home.
