Re: Tree leaning on Cablevision Line

Cablevision is a tenant of the poles. Verizon and the power company generally own poles. As such I would expect the "landlord" to be responsible for area maintenance. As another poster noted, since there is no electricity on the pole, it is most likely owned by Verizon.

Of course the simple solution is for the tree to bring the lines down and then Verizon and Cablevision can come and replace them with new lines.

Thanks everyone. Yes I understand Cablevision does not own any poles. There is no pole damage, but perhaps the pole owner has exclusive responsibilities for keeping the lines clear of trees.

I submitted an inquiry to the NJ Board of Public Utilities, just to get their position on the matter.

As was stated, I can just ignore the problem until it becomes service affecting.

You should try calling again, they definitely should be doing something about this. If you're in the area of the Randolph office on Route 10, stop in and tell one of the people at the counter you see a potential problem that would lead to an outage by your house and ask if they could get a supervisor for you. The construction and OSP supervisiors for your town are in that building.

Is it your tree? Is it on your property? Don't be surprised if you get charged for the tree trimming!

I have never seen that tree before.
