I hate to add to your workload when you are trying to keep up with the snow but you need to be notified of dead and leaning trees across from 3612 36th PL SE, Mercer Island, WA. One tree is dead and looks to be fractured about 10 ft up the tree. The tree are maybe 60-80ft tall and are leaning toward the other side of the street where your power line is located. Also about 50 ft south is a tree that is already leaning over the street headed to the power line. It already has heavy broken branch debris at its base FYI, this all on city of Mercer Island green belt property, where the whole side is starting to slough down the hill to the street. Please see photo which only. These are a serious treat to the power lines. See photos. Kevin Grady at 3604 76th PL SE, Mercer Island. 206-660-6654.
