If the neigbor's tree fell on your property due to storm or any other natural calamity then you can inform the neighbor about the incident and can give him an estimation of the damages caused due to this and ask him to pay the same within a time stipulated thereby in your notice.

If he fails to comply with the demands made, you can sue him for recovery of damages or compensation
