Recommended Posts

deepportage01

Six months ago a tree that was on the nabors property fell on my trolling motor[value $600] When I talked to them about this they told me they had a $2,500 ded and would see if they could claim it, I left it alone thinking they would do the rite thing a pay for it,3 weeks ago I brought it up for the 2nd time and was told that the "well was dry" implying they where broke or they just don't want to pay, They are my cabin nabors and I don't want to start a war but what should I do they are pasive on the whole thing, The funny part about this hole thing is she is my insurance agent and a freind. Help please

I suppose the other option's would be to be more firm about collecting and if they dont want to make it right a small claim's would be the other thing.

I had a neighbors tree fall on my privacy fence between our yards last year(my fence)....she never even contacted me about it. Our insurance agent said it wasn't a rotten tree so she wasn't at fault for it falling, hence my insurance covered some of the repair. Was out about the same $$$$ as you are going to be...Plus I got to clean up a huge tree in my yard too...I would say call Your insurance agent, but that probably won't work either...

What is the trolling motor worth? Is it worth the hassle? I agree that she is not be forthright and I question her ethics as an insurance agaent.

I wonder what would happen if you filed a claim against your own homeowner's insurance. Don't know for sure but perhaps your insurance company would then pursue her for recovery.

No matter what happens I think I would be insurance shopping.

Sorry. I guess if it were me, and I felt the way that you evidently do, I would have just taken it in stride and moved on without bringing it up on here. I was just stating my opinion. It is a tough spot to be in. My neighbors blue spruce is growing into my yard so far that it is almost touching my house. I just keep my mouth shut and mow around it. I have no other problems with the neighbor. wink.gif

As jerkin'em mentioned, unless your neighbor was negligent in not pruning the dead branches of the tree, or if the tree it self was dead and a normal prudent person would recognize it posed a hazard, there is likely no liability on the neighbor's part.

Folks often don't understand this one - but think of it this way - if a tornado hit and picked up your healthy tree and deposited it two miles away on someone's house, would you be responsible? Most people, given this example would say no. Same goes for the tree next door - if the owner didn't have knowledge it posed a hazard, they shouldn't be held liable for the wind storm that blows it next door or across the county.

May not be worth turning it into your carrier depending on your deductible, etc. Talk w/your agent.

Sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear frown.gif

Ya know... Regardless of whose fault it was (or wasn't), the neighbor should have done whats right and paid for damage caused by their tree. Its like a lot of things in this world, people just want to avoid any responsibility for...

I have a similar situation right now. I have a 75 ft. black spruce tree that although it looks pretty healthy it has a good lightning scar at the top. It poses no danger to my house garage, etc. But because of the location my new neighbor built his house, it could really do a lot of damage if it fell his direction. Although I hate to cut such a beautiful tree, I would sure feel horrible if this tree came down and took out half his house. We talked about it and just agreed to split the cost of taking it down because that was the right thing to do.

      Have heard of very few.  An occasional rainbow (looper and steelhead, make sure to learn the difference) mixed in with the catch in Two Harbors, along with lake trout near the bottom on the right day.  I've seen a few cruising under the ice in McQuade, but pretty slow there.  Rainbow action will pick up as spring progresses.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.
