Horticultural Asset Management, Inc. (HMI) is assisting victims of Hurricane Ike by providing dedicated crews from its national network of tree care experts. HMI's network provides all services related to tree claims and tree damage recovery, including tree and debris removal, reports to support subrogation actions, and replacement cost values for lost trees and shrubs.
Doug Malawsky, HMI's Chief Operating Officer and Director of the Claims Program said, "Our work is both heart-wrenching and rewarding. We get calls from homeowners who desperately need to get trees off of their homes. We give them the assurance that help is on the way. It's rewarding when we can source one of our dedicated crews quickly and get them recovered, and at this point we can do it in a day or less."
HMI is also managing the claims process for tree-related claims for the insureds, the tree care industry and the insurance industry. When a claim is received a tree care expert is immediately sourced and sent to the loss location to inspect the damage, determine urgency, and provide pictures and an estimate for adjusting purposes. HMI is processing hundreds of claims for 8 insurance companies in the Houston area alone, as well as in Louisiana, Ohio and Indianapolis.
"Our network has processed thousands of claims successfully and has provided superior service to the insurance industry. When a tree is on an insured's home, we can get it off quickly and safely and mitigate any further damage," said Malawsky. "HMI has created the first national network of professional tree care experts which can provide a turnkey solution to insurance companies, disaster recovery services and restoration companies regarding damage caused by trees. Furthermore, having a national network of arborists provides a one stop solution for insurance companies which also may require an arborist opinion or analysis of tree loss."
