Of course, the falling tree also did a number on the little tree that was planted just a couple of months ago -- tore a number of branches off it. So, we're going to have to see if the little tree makes it.

For the replacement, get the quotes from the big boys to submit to the insurance company

I might not have filed for that. Chain link is easy to fix and the parts inexpensive.

Cut up the tree and stand the fence back up. The top tube is likely a V with a kink where the tree hit. The rest is likely undamaged unless the tree hit a post directly. The parts are Home Depot stuff.

Not worth a claim IMHO.
Insurance is for catastrophic events.

Damn, so that means it would have covered my divorce from my first wife??? How long after the event can the homeowner still file?

That insurance you have to get before you buy.
