1256-1288 South Church Street Mount Laurel, New Jersey
The storm that came through Burlington County on June 21st caused two trees along S Church Street to break in half. The top halves are almost horizontal, leaning on the next set of trees, and resting right above the cable and phone lines. The trees are on the North corner of S Church Street just past Academy Drive in Mount Laurel. I live at 30 Farnwood and these trees are behind my property, on township property along S Church St. The next heavy wind storm will most likely cause the top halves of the trees to come the rest of the way down to the ground, bringing the wires with them. I would suggest sending a crew to remove the broken sections of the two trees before they take the wire down. If you, or the crew, need help finding the trees you can give me a call. It should not be hard, there are only about 8 trees along that north corner and two of them have a 90 degree angle in the middle.
I already called Burlington County and the guy that came out said the county right of way only extends 32 feet from the center double yellow line and when he measured, he found that the trees are 40 feet away which means they are on township property.
