Tree on verge has damaged phone line

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 12:05, Monday 7 February 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 416620.

There are two mature trees on the verge outside number 32 Highfields, Nettleham. An elderly resident has noticed that where the telephone line goes through the canopy the line has already been damaged and she is concerned that she will be cut off, if the tree causes any further abrasion. Reduction of the canopy to preserve and protect the telephone cable is urgently requested.
