Q.Trumpet Vine On Electricity Pole
Hi, the trumpet vine in front of my house is climbing up a wooden electricity pole. The plant already reached the top of the post. Can the roots cause damage to the cables and/or cause power outage?

There's no way to tell how much damage these invasive roots could cause in this case, but I would certainly contact your utility company for an assessment. Here's an article that might help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/trumpet-vine/trumpet-vine-roots.htm
