A toppling tree briefly disrupted service on the Green Line today, the second day in a row trees have caused problems on the line, the MBTA said.
The tree was leaning on a guide wire, the wire that supports the wires that funnel power to the trolleys, just east of Beaconsfield Station on the D branch, T spokesman Joe Pesaturo said in a statement.
The problem was reported by a trolley operator at 10:23 a.m, he said. A work crew with chainsaws was sent to the scene to clear the wires.
Service has now been restored, the T reported on its website shortly before 11:30 a.m.
Service was disrupted for nearly six hours Wednesday on the C branch of the Green Line after a large tree fell on the tracks near the Brandon Hall stop.
