I accidentally hit a sidewalk tree while parking at home today.
Thought I was in reverse when I was actually in drive. The tree was a baby tree and so it the roots apparently just got ripped underneath the ground and it leaned over. Fortunately car is also fine. I also got the tree to stand upright after just pushing on it. It looks completely fine, though I’m sure the roots are messed up.
Should I apologize to anyone, and if so, who? The county website states that caring of sidewalk trees fall to the home owners adjacent to said tree, but it doesn’t say anything about actual ownership.
