First Time Homeowner, neighbor has rotting trees positioned to fall on my house

House next to me is a section 8 house and the tenants apparently have no idea who the owner is, or at least will not disclose. ( I think they genuinely do not know, but i have no idea how that works) I have reached out to the local housing authority and gotten no response. Problem I have is that there are 2-3 very tall trees (probably pine or sweetgum) on the property line that are positioned to fall on my carport and on my bedroom. One tree is obviously decayed and has fallen into another tree. Depending on how the decay progresses this tree may collapse onto my carport or may just buckle and hit anything parked in my driveway. The other tree which seems more dangerous is covered in ivy all the way up to the top and recently during heavy winds a big section fell from the top onto my driveway and from the looks of that section that tree ( which is actually two trees covered in the same vegetation) is rotted to the core also. That tree, when it falls, will fall onto my bedroom. How do I begin to address this? I called my insurance company and they were not interested at all, would not say anything since I do not have a claim. Do i just pay for removal? Based on my past experience with the trees in my yard that is going to be 3-5k easily, which is no small amount of money for me. I am stressed every night bc I dont feel safe sleeping in my bedroom.

Help?
