Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

RE: Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

Can't tell from the photo if the branch was live or not. If not live, then I see no problem as it should be dry.
If it is still alive... problem.

Could this be a patented developmental model for an internally wired Christmas tree?

Nothing in my NEC about trees...

RE: Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

Hundreds of feet of electrical wiring run through 2x6" boards in our house, all to code. The difference in Gunnar's photo is that the timber is not sawn and planed?

RE: Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

It looks like an extension lead rather than fixed wiring to me so probably not covered by the wiring regs. I suspect there are plenty of violations that weren't mentioned/photographed though!

RE: Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

Is that what they call in the UK a trunk line? ponder

In the US I we call it a branch line. pipe

RE: Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

Come on now guys, leaf it alone.

RE: Tree trunk worse than behind-the-wall?

Time to perform a root cause analysis, I am knot going to put up with this tomfoolery any longer.

This string is living proof that electricals are wired wrong.

May so be - but it works wonderfully!

Try that with a bridge or a building...
