Q. Why are there so many dead trees lining N.C. 133 from Leland to Southport? Who is responsible if one falls on a vehicle?

A.  The N.C. Department of Transportation cares for all trees within the right of way, according to Jackson Provost, Division 3 construction engineer.

“If there are trees … that are in danger of falling in the road, our maintenance folks will evaluate and act accordingly,” he said.

Provost said he was not aware of any trees that are dead along N.C. 133 between Leland and Southport. MyReporter did not spot great numbers of dead trees during a recent trip down that road.

If you know of a tree that could pose a hazard to motorists, call DOT’s division office at 341-2000.
