Re: Bell Lines vs. Tree

Interesting thread.

I had a similar experience in cottage country in Muskoka. I notice a tree straining against a major bell line (not just a home line) along the road. The cable was the only thing holding the tree up.

Call Bell. They didn't know who to inform. Email a buddy who works for Bell. He didn't know who handled it.

So, I guess they respond to outages but not prevention.

Probably because repairs are covered by Bell's insurance while prevention which is the land owner's responsibility is not.

Bell self insures for anything that small, so I doubt that.

And I bet part of that self-insurance include staff dedicated to contacting the land owner's insurance to file claims against the owner's insurance just like an external insurer would.

No. They contract that out to Claimspro. They don't use their own staff.
