Am I responsible for removing a tree that fell across the road in the mobile home park that we rent for our mobile home.

This will depend upon your contract or agreement with the owner. If the contract states "plants and bushes" that is most likely exclusive of trees. However, without reviewing the contract it is difficult to say. Under RCW 59.20.130, a landlord of a mobile home park is responsible for maintaining any common area and also the roads within the mobile home park. If the tree was located on the lot you are renting, it is possible that you might be responsible for removing it. Again, without reviewing your agreement with the landlord, it is difficult to determine. You might have an attorney review it, as well as any other CCRs or covenants that apply to the community.
