Nongprue residents want dead tree razed


Residents of a Nongprue housing development want the sub-district to cut down a dead tree perilously hanging over power lines.


Pongsak Tieangtong led the residents of Eakmongkol 4 Village in requesting government help Sept. 15 in removing the dead tree branches near the intersection of Soi Khao Talo 7.

He said branches are hanging over high-voltage lines and should a powerful storm hit, they could break and take down the wires or even start a fire.

He said residents have complained numerous times to various agencies, but as the tree is on private property with an unknown owner, nothing has been done. However, he said, the branches hang over power lines on public property.
