WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — One day after Vesta Village residents called WWAY about a tree limb that had fallen on a home blocking the doorway, they finally got some results.

This morning contractors showed up at the home on Colwell Drive and removed the limb that had been on the home since June 8.

The woman who lives there does not want to show her face for fear of reprisal from the Wilmington Housing Authority, but she said she knows who to call for results.

“Thank you so much for assisting us, because the tree has been down for two weeks,” she said. “You got done in less than 24 hours what I couldn’t get done in two weeks. I just want to thank you guys so much, because you really did help. My older boys were ecstatic when they came out of the front door and it was gone, but they’re still waiting on the basketball goal, so hopefully that won’t take too much longer.”

At the next Vesta Village residents meeting, the WHA will discuss replacing a basketball goal for kids its crews tore down.
