  15. It certainly sounds like it does. Generally speaking, You cant make the tree owner have it inspected but they would be liable if they were made aware of it and chose to do nothing, which then resulted in a foreseeable failure which caused harm. Just because trees sometimes have cavities it isnt always a problem but they do need assessing by a competent person to determine that.
