Since he was renting--I hope he has renters insurance--if not whatever he had that was damaged is going to be on him. The landlords insurance does not provide coverage for the renters property inside the house.

Insurance does not usually cover damage done by a "dead" tree. It should have been removed when it was determined that it was dead. The damage will have to be paid by the homeowner since he was at fault. Insurance will only cover when a "live" tree falls.
