Tree Maintenance & Safety

Trees and Electricity

When planting trees on your property, always remember to watch for overhead power lines (and remember to call before you dig to locate underground utilities). The tree you plant now could grow into nearby power lines in the years to come, and become not only a potential hazard to the energized lines but children and tree trimmers as well. When planting new trees, keep in mind how tall the tree will grow at maturity, and plant accordingly to keep them well away from power lines.
