Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Yes, it is very likely that the landowner would not be liable for the tree falling IF it fell during a windstorm and it was truly an "Act of God".
The only real issue would be if the tree was rotten, dead, etc. and the landowner knew it and didn't take action to remove the tree and end the threat of it falling.
If that were the case, the landowner could have some liability for being negligent. However, if the tree was alive and only fell due to the windstorm, there's no liability.
