Tree Branches near main Cable Connection pole (pole located in neighbors yard)

Who is responsible for removing tree branches near a xfinity neighborhood main cable pole?

Hi LoriF1 -- The owner of the tree would be responsible for tree maintenance. This is not something that we do. We will tend to the lines if they are damaged by the tree though.

The technician could not reach the pole with a ladder to intall a line to my house.  The pole and tree are not on my property.  I guess I will not be able to get xfinity services.

LoriF1 -- Is the tree on city property by chance? You can request that the city come out to trim the tree.

Re: Tree Branches near main Cable Connection pole (pole located in neighbors yard)

No the pole is in the back of the yard of a house.  I am guessing there is an easement for it.  It is also the same pole that ComEd uses but I was told their connection is higher and this may make a difference for them.   So either it is easier to get at for ComEd or knowone has had to get at the pole recently.

LoriF1 -- Would you be able to send me your address information please? I'm going to send this over to local tech ops to see if they can use a different connection point since this tree is in the way.
