Linden tree attacks buried coaxial cable!


tree root pushes buried coaxial cable up to the surface
This once-buried coaxial cable was actually pushed right up to the surface, where it could be seen in the grass. The root had to be cut through and a section removed to allow the coax to be reburied.


coaxial cable pulled taut by root
You can see how the upward pressure from this root has stretched the coaxial cable so tight that it is deforming. The cable’s dielectric would have failed eventually.
