A Decatur man said his daughter had just left for work when a tree fell into her bedroom.
"The next thing I knew it sounded like two or three grenades," said Michael Person.
Person said a landscape company recently told him the tree should be cut down.
He said he called his insurance company to see whether it would help with the expense.
"And they told me they couldn't help me until it actually fell on the house and I just said, ‘I hope no one gets killed in the process' and so now I guess I can call my insurance company back and tell them what happened," said Person.
Person said the tree fell on two of his cars.
The county will remove the portion of the tree which is blocking the street. The homeowner will be responsible for the portion of the tree up to his property line.
