It got me thinking though - how resistant are phone wires to effects of trees? I see many phone lines passing through trees so they must be resistant to some extent. I assume problems only occur if thick branches grow and cause the line to stretch and/or damage the insulation?
My line is relatively new compared to some (16 years old) so I'm hoping its insulation is sufficient to withstand the leaves that are touching it!
