This a tree you DO NOT want to hug. It’s a tree that has fallen on or next to a power line. About one out of five unplanned power outages in America are caused by trees and other vegetation growing too close to power lines. High winds in Northern Nevada can (and often do) cause trees to fall on lines of communication.
Trees and electricity don’t mix! Just having a tree growing too close to a power line is a source of great potential danger. There is the risk of fire in dry conditions. Electricity can travel from the top of the tree directly to the ground. Obviously, those that touch such foliage are subject to shock and even electrocution.
