My brother rents a property in Virginia and after a storm four months ago, a massive tree was struck by lightning and fell and is now blocking their driveway. They are still able to drive through the yard to get to the house but the landlord has been dragging his feet to remedy this situation. What can he do?

Is the tree blocking the driveway some kind of a code violation? Also there is another huge tree still standing that is clearly dead and has already been struck by lightning and it's a miracle it's still standing. It is only a matter of time before that thing falls and it's right next to the house, is there any way to get the landlord to take care of that tree also? They have purchased renter's insurance in case the tree falls and damages their belongings.
Of course my brother needs to call the local tenant union, but I wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with this, thanks.
