In the recent Wellington storm one of the trees on our section of land fell across a neighbours garden. Am I liable for the cost of removal?

christhelawyer : This is referred to as an Act of God, by the insurers, which means it is a natural event which is no ones fault.
christhelawyer : This means that you are not responsible for the removal, and the neighbours may need to claim on their insurance.
