Broadband work Causing Trees to Fall


[link to this post]
 
It seems that Broadband work may have damaged tree roots causing the trees to fall over. This is from initial investigations. If this is found to be the cause the rules with regard to digging near to trees may be changed

More supposition without foundation ...


But what else do we expect from you.

Around me it's trees that are causing broadband to fail! smile

The storm took out the power for most of yesterday. Just seen OR up a cherry picker repairing a line close to me - my line seems to have got away with things, so far...

If going to try and start a debate at least let people see where you got the idea from i.e.

That would seem to be the case for any digging up around trees - presumably just covering broadband as it is the current flavour of the month and the most likely thing to have been recent digging (although around my county they have been replacing all the street lights and there has been far more digging for that than for broadband).

Agreed, and broadband digging in 2013 tends to be limited to small runs of a few metre between cabinets, rather than the complete streets that the cable companies started in the 1980's.

Ah yes the usual "experts said" line from the Daily Mail... and of course the obligatory 1 massive photo to every 10 words of text format. 80 words of misinformed propaganda accompanied with 8 large images. They'll link in immigration soon by saying they dug the trenches for the cables.

I thought it was the wind. Not that there was much of that anyway.

Thanks for the link Andrew.

I note the fourth picture down, not counting the video, appears rotten anyway. It's caption is very fitting.
