Description

New York Telephone / Verizon / Con Edison utility pole is supported by a guy wire that girdles an American beech located in Hunt Woods Park. The species has very thin bark. The guy wire has already penetrated the bark, affording an entry for tree-killing fungus (beech snap). The ~80-foot-tall tree could fall on the house that is about 30 feet away.
