Will home owner's insurance pay for the down tree removal cost from a storm in the property?

Not necessarily. Many policies include a clause specifically addressing tree removal, and very often this policy limits the payment for removal of downed trees to $500 -- and that's $500 TOTAL, not per tree. The only way to know for sure what your policy covers is to check your individual policy, and speaking to your insurance agent is always a good idea. You can sometimes purchase additional insurance for tree removal if you feel you may be at risk due to the number or size of trees that you have and the likelihood of major storms in your area.
