The landlord would only be responsible for the difference in rental vs. hotel cost, as well as for any lost/damaged personal property of yours, IF the landlord knew (or reasonably must have known; that is, any landlord in his position would have known) that the tree posed some specific threat--that is, it was visibly and obviously sick, dying, dead, etc. If the landlord knew of a threat and refused or failed to take action, that could support finding him liable; without some knowledge of a threat, however, the landlord is not at fault--he did nothing wrong--and would not be liable.
