Go to the tax assessor's office and find out who owns the lot. If the tree is in bad shape and may fall, then contact the property owner and ask them to remove it. If you are afraid that the tree may fall because of a Hurricane, but have no reason to believe it is not in very good shape, then if it falls, it is an act of God. Make sure your insurance covers such "acts of God."
