Tree Limb on Phone Lines

I have contacted Verizon numerous times over the past 3 years about a tree limb growing over a phone line.  Each time I was told there is nothing they can do, it is my responsiblity to cut the tree.  I have spent close to a thousand dollars on tree pruning since we moved in 5 years ago, but the problem is this one particular tree limb is GROWN OVER the phone line, so no tree trimmer can fix that as they are not allowed to actually touch the phone line, which belongs to Verizon. The tree limb on the line has continue to grow over the years, and is pushing on the phone line so hard they are all out of place and snapping together. I have called and called and emailed and no one ever gets back to me. I am now documenting all my attempts at communication so when the limb grown through the lines finally does break and bring down phone service for my neighbors I have proof that I tried.  I also saved all my tree pruning receipts and this could have been fixed years ago if Verizon would have worked with me. So frustrating.
