An Amherst, New York man says he does not know which company cut down a tree that landed on his neighbor’s home.
The homeowner had hired a contractor to remove the tree, but that contractor apparently subcontracted the work out to an unnamed entity. After the subcontractor felled the tree on top of the neighbor’s home, the crew fled. Police are still trying to identify those responsible, according to a WKBW.com report.
Ultimately, the homeowner had to hire a reputable tree service company to safely remove the tree from his neighbor’s roof.
