I maintain a new park and recently we been having a lot of wind. The landscaper didn't anchor his tree stakes that well, and every time the wind picks up the stake breaks and the tree leans over. I was able to save one and 3 others have snapped. I probably could have saved them if I had the time to drive by the park every day to check on it. My contract doesn't have any of these costs of replacing trees in it, should I contact the owners and inform them and replace the trees and bill it to them separetly? I don't think that I should be responsible for the costs of "acts of God." I was going to use steel stakes next time to prevent the breaking, is that a good idea, or should I replace them with the same wood stakes the landscaper used? Should my contracts/estimates plan for these formalities or not? How have any of you handled these situations? Sorry, a few more questions I thought of while typing. Thanks.
