The branch is still hanging above the power line over 3 ft because the rest of the branch is resting on my fence line. Not touching anything

I'm in Austin, but I think the building codes w/r/to electricity are probably not too dissimilar from yours.
City power agency is responsible for everything up to your breaker box. Don't fuck with it. You probably have at least 2 120V legs wired into there and your regular load would power your A/C, washer/dryer, other appliances, lights, tv, etc.: way more than could kill you. If you called out an electrician he'd probably tell you to call the power co. Call the power company. Unfortunately you're probably SOL as they likely have bigger things to deal with right now if you haven't actually lost service.

He did say it was resting on his fence and not touching the power line. Unless it's so big he couldn't move it himself, I don't see why he doesn't just use the fence as a pivot and move it himself.
of course if it's like a 8" dia. oak branch or something, yeah, call the power company
