Trees and cables

Go to solution

Hi, I have a large conifer tree in my back garden. Three phone lines go through the tree as it has grown higher over the years, and the wires are now caught in the branches and pulled tight (The lines are no longer straight, they go up into the tree then down out of the tree). Clearly, as the tree continues to grow, the cables will eventually snap. 

What needs to be done to fix this?


Thanks, Tony
