This tree is normally a very large tree. I should be as wide as it is tall. But man has decided that the wires going from post to post are much more important then trees. If(when) we have a hurricane we need the wires. The answer might be put the line underground. No way! If the line is in the ground when the tree falls over, the roots would tear the lines apart. The lines above ground are easy to detect and fix, but think of the problem of finding something you can't see. The only answer is to remove the trees, I don't think so. We love our trees and we will have to pay for them.
