I recently have bought a new property and have noticed the trees in back garden are touching the phone lines. I am not a bt customer but was wondering who’s responsibility it was to sort this as I think it could cause potential damage/disruption to the service?
Please can I have some help/advice
You may need to check with your local authority first to make sure that the tree doesn't have a Tree Preservation Order on it, if it does then you can't prune or fell it without permission to do so. .
Yeah, it’s really tall and mangling the lines.
As I’m a new neighbor to the area and it is in my garden and is blocking the sunlight and probably is **bleeping** off the neighbours I’ll just have to check with local authority to make sure I am ok and try get it cut back/down.
Thanks for all the help
If it's so tall as to run the risk of property damage if it came down during a storm then the local authority are unlikely to object to you pruning it even if there is a preservation order on it.
