Tree trimming and keeping brush and shrubs cut back from the structure is considered an Owners Maintenance issue. Maintenance issues are never covered under a home insurance policy.

It's not very likely this would be considered a covered loss. Maintenance issues are never a covered hazard on our home insurance policy.

Mold or algae growing on a roof would likely indicate that the roof has far too much shade or has overgrowth perhaps even in direct contact with your roof. Cutting back your overgrowth will cure the problem.

This is a normal maintenance issue and an expected incidental part of home ownership.

No. This is not what homeowners insurance is for. Homeowners insurance is to pay for physical damage to your home and contents.

No, unfortunately it does not. Your homeowners insurance covers damage to your home. Your auto insurance covers damage to your car.

No. You homeowners insurance specifically excludes motorized vehicles. You auto insurance will cover damage you did to their home with your car. Your homeowners is not designed to cover damage you do with your vehicle under any circumstances.

Your homeowners insurance should cover damage to your sprinkler system if the cause of the damage is covered by your homeowners insurance policy such as fire, lightning, freezing of pipes, etc. Homeowners insurance is not a maintenance policy and will not cover mechanical failure of your system.
