Electricity and flammable objects don’t play well together—unless you define “playing well together” as starting a house fire.
If you take the traditional view on what “playing well together” means, however, I would suggest you pay attention to vegetative overgrowth in direct contact with overhead electrical service entrance conductors. Allowing this type of contact is a bad idea.
I came across this issue recently on a home inspection in Bellingham, and I noted in my report to provide proper clearance for safety reasons.
