What to do when it snows
When a snow emergency is declared, the Prince George?s County Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) is responsible for providing "passable" conditions on a network of over 1,800 miles of county-maintained roadways to ensure the safety of residents, citizens, and travelers.
Routes are prioritized for service into categories: primary, secondary and residential. Primary and secondary roads are serviced first to ensure that public safety and other emergency vehicles can travel.
After completion of these roads, residential roads receive service. Crews work as long as necessary to clear roadways, which consists of salting, sanding and/or plowing, as warranted by weather conditions.
Snow plows need at least 15 feet of clearance to maneuver safely. To assist crews, citizens and residents are requested to:
If you have a fallen tree blocking a roadway, please phone 311 or notify County Click.
Will insurance cover damage from fallen trees and removal of fallen trees?
According to the Maryland Insurance Administration web page "If a Tree Falls on Your Property":
At one time or another, just about every homeowner or someone the homeowner knows has had a tree fall due to wind, a storm or winter weather. The question that everyone wants to know is, will my homeowners insurance pay for the damage?

Although the terms of your actual policy will determine if the damage you have incurred is covered, generally many homeowners policies will:
Removal and Disposal of Tree Debris
The recent storms have raised many questions about tree damage, tree debris and removal of all that debris.
Now, HOW to dispose of it is the major issue! Please do NOT dump it on another property owner.
The county does NOT accept logs at any facility. Therefore, the private contractor should ensure the debris can be picked up by the yard waste collection our community has on Wednesdays. That means:
As far as logs are concerned, the county's Yard Waste Composting Facility, Yard Waste Collection Section, the Brown Station Road Landfill site all provided the same information. Logs should be taken by the private contractor to a site that splits them and then sells them for fire wood.
If anyone has any further information which they can share, please send it to RENABoard@gmail.com. We want to be as accurate as we can be and to provide the best information we can to the community.
