Default Get this tree off my window!

Sunday night a large tree branch broke and fell on my bedroom window. Luckily the window didn't break. I informed the apt management early Monday morning. It is now Wed early evening. The landscapers were out today and they cut grass and trimmed hedges; however no one has attempted to remove this tree from my window. (I can't see out and daylight can't come in) Is there someone else I can call to have this tree removed? I feel my safety is in jeopardy and should not have to live like this.

Can you open the window and give the branch a mighty heave?

I would call the apt management back and tell them that the branch is still there and that it needs to be removed immediately. They may not realize that the landscapers didn't remove it. If they give you any problems tell them if it's not gone by a certain date that you will contact the city and file a complaint.

Landscapers are not necessarily equipped for tree trimming and removal. Although I agree the landord should have this taken care of on a timely basis.

Most decent landlords want to do the right thing, but what is a priority for you isn't always a priority for them. Remember the old adage: Squeaky wheel gets the oil!

Start squeaking. In all seriousness, I would tell the manager again tomorrow and if it is not gone in about 3 more days, complain that your point of egress is blocked and it is a safety hazard in case of a fire. Nobody likes the fire marshall visiting.

Thanx...but I think I'm gonna have to wait til tomorrow. As I got in my car this morning...I noticed the small tree in the front had been cut down. I guess the groundskeeper got the wrong instructions. I just have to wonder how he could just cut down a perfectly good tree. I guess all he heard was cut tree and the building number. smh.
