Tree growing around the neutral wire

Recommended Posts

Would you recommend that the tree that has grown around this outside neutral wire be removed? Besides the weight, I don't think it's doing any harm.

I recommended removing it.  I have seen this many times before but never on one of my inspections.

It's an organic stockbridge damper. . . 

I'd advise them to call the power company and find out if they know about it and if they're ok with it.

The tree has been removed. That's a log.😉

It's very likely the utility, or their contractor, is the party responsible for leaving it.

Yep, somebody from the power company needs to remove it, hopefully while the seller is still paying the bill. They were just seasoning it first.  😀

If you don't report it, your client might be dismayed to eventually see the cost of removal on his power bill.
