YOUR tree has fallen down in YOUR garden and you think you might not be able to keep some?!?

Of course you can - it is YOUR tree.


Kind regards, Mac

Its not quite that simple tough.

The contract to remove the tree is between the contractor and the insurance company.

Standard terms is to remove the tree from site with all arising's becoming the property of the contractor. The contractors price might well include a discount for any salvageable timber.

If the timber is staying on site the contractor needs to know how much and in what form. Turning the wood into something the average domestic can split takes time, fuel and wear and tear on kit.

Worst case scenario for the contractor is he gets to spend a couple of hours processing the timber but not keep it.

The OP needs to tell the insurance company that they wish to keep the timber but require it to be cut to suitable lengths.

Thanks Treeman

Another difference of course is that a surgeon would have to be pretty incompetent to amputate his own arm or head by mistake.
