Are you saying you did not give them permission to come onto your property to remove certain trees/plants? If so, that's serious. And, to disgard evidence and then leave a hole and a mess? Unbelieveable.

They are disorganized--there is no incentive to be organized, and there is no incentive to care. Period.

got intouch with davey tree,she said the guy in charge just dropped off a box with hazard trees paperwork,she will look through it and find mine and send it to dupont,she has since called me back to inform me that she found everything and sent it to dupont today,now i have calls into dupont to confirm that happened,now as for dupont........my question now is why for a year dupont said my claim is under review,then i get a call 2 weeks ago saying it was moved from review to being sent to atty for final draft,then today they tell me it has a hold on it,all awhile the "hotline" says under review......

FYI - just to give people an update.

I have 6 pines 20-25' tall affected. I received my resolution packet at the beginning of June which basically said replace 5 and do maintenance on 1. I sent back a counter one week later saying I'm Ok with everything except all 6 are dying so I'd like to replace all at once rather than replacing 5 and then waiting a year and replacing the 6th. It's been 4 months and just received a call from DuPont that there lawyers reviewed my counter and they want to send out one of their people to do a new review. Before they scheduled they did ask if I had retained an outside attorney-which I have not (yet).

As we get closer to 2 years since Imprelis was applied on or near our properties it's important to find out in your area what the statute of limitations is in case those currently in the direct process but haven't yet given up their rights, and those who found out late they had damage, decide they need to proceed through litigation. I think for most of us Imprelis was applied sometime from April - June 2011. It's already been about a year and a half for some. Time flies doesn't it?

According to the complaints, DuPont introduced Imprelis herbicide in October 2010 and marketed the product as a safe and effective way to treat the roots and shoots of the most common and hard to kill broadleaf weeds present in turf grass without any negative impact on surrounding plants
2 years. Sad, isn't it.
