Tree branches on service lines

Message 1 of 4

My Fios service lines are being pressed on by a neighbor's overgrown tree from across a driveway between our houses.  Does Verizon offer tree trimming to keep my service active?

You have a right to cut any portion that encroaches on your property line.

i have a neighbor that has a tree causing some distress to our fios, electrical and cable lines. I confronted the owner next door and warned him if the tree is not trimmed as to not cause us any distress.

 

however i used a chain saw and hacked the branch off at his tree. So problem solved for now.

No. If a tree breaks the line, Verizon will come out and replace it with a new one. The tree trimming is the homeowner’s responsibility.
