Will Cox remove a tree falling onto thier cable line?

After a recent wind storm a large tree behind my house, in the utility right-of-way, is now falling onto the suspended cable line. I'm concerned that due to the amount of rain we've had softening the ground this tree will fall completely and separate the cable line from the utility pole. Since this tree is in the utility right of way is this an issue that Cox will address?

      Already tried that route. They are only concerned with the top energized line which ends at a utility pole to the right of where ther tree is coming down so it's only affecting the cable.

    Sounds like a safety hazard.  Put your tax dollars to work and call the city to coordinate.

      If the tree separates the line, he is definitely going to have technical issues.
