Trees too close to overhead power lines cause outages, especially in high winds. If they are your trees then they are your responsibility and if you’re rural, no power will mean you have no water either! If you are in town you won’t know how much you need your power till you have none!
Be vigilant in monitoring any trees or vegetation near overhead powerlines. A considered safe distance or clearance from powerlines for trees depends on the voltage of the lines and will vary from 1.5 m to 5 m.
Clearing trees away from overhead powerlines presents a significant risk to the person carrying out the work. As a trusted contractor to Counties Power, we have the skills and the qualified arborists to help you with your trees in overhead power lines. We can safely give you good clearance, allowing for the movement of limbs in heavy rain and gusty winds for years to come. Don’t try removing broken branches or debris away from lines as it’s dangerous and you may be asked to cover any damage you have caused to the powerlines and the effect it may have on other users.
It is always advisable to be proactive and prevent an emergency call out so if you are not sure what you need, call us and we will be happy to advise you and provide a free quote.
