The storm damage from Sunday left many trees on the street and on homeowner property.

Wildcat Tree Service estimates removing a large tree can cost up to $6,000.

The company's owner Billy Garner tells KGUN that he has received about fifty calls regarding tree removals since Sunday.

"Started Sunday night and have been going non-stop," said Garner. "We probably have a week's worth of trees right now if nothing else happens."

Garner and his crew have been cleaning up the fallen trees in Winterhaven.

Steve O'Hagin, a resident in the Winterhaven neighborhood, experienced his neighbor's 100-foot tree fall onto his property. The tree destroyed his carport, porch and car. 

"The insurance says the storm blows over a tree, it is an act of God," O'Hagin explained. "So it is basically, you know it is like a 50-50 deal. We are both contributing to the tree's removal.

Garner advises homeowners that have large trees on their property to keep them trimmed and light to avoid any damages when another storm hits.
