Laura Everette didn’t know what to do after Hurricane Irma knocked a tree onto her minivan.
Everette, 57, is a double amputee and she lives on a fixed income.
Tree removal and clean-up can be expensive with costs ranging from the hundreds to thousands of dollars. As homeowners and renters across South Florida continue to deal with the aftermath of Irma, that means figuring out what to do with toppled trees on private property.
Everette, a renter, tried calling her landlord but didn’t get a response.
