The insurance covers the things that are " sudden and unexpected " . Although a tree root causing unexpected collapse is far from sudden. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So no , you can not complain. You have a case to sue the person who planted the tree if it could be shown that the person knew that the tree could cause such problems .
