    Tree root damage does not fall under the category of sudden and accidental. Tree root damage occurs over a long period of time and is thereby considered avoidable. I do understand the problem is out of site out of mind but homeowners have an obligation to maintain their property and if a plant becomes a hazard the issues needs to be dealt with therefore root damage is not a covered peril of a homeowners policy.
