If it is your tree on your property then it is your responsibility to get it cut back if necessary, Openreach (it is nothing to do with BT) will only do anything about it if a fault on the line occurs.

I doubt Openreach will be interested until a fault develops on one of the lines, you could try calling them on 0800 023 2023 and see what they say.

As stated Openreach will not really concern themselves with it until it goes faulty.

Even when it does they’ll just cut and draw a new cable through the tree.

Do call that number though and raise a Damage Report Overhead Fault. It’ll be a nice easy Flex Off Friday job for someone.
