Fallen trees are a

Fallen trees are a significant cause of power outages, particularly during a major storm. The impact of not having power can extend far beyond the inconvenience of being unable to turn the lights on, for you and your neighbours. The power of being prepared The key thing is to ensure that trees are well within a safe fall zone of power lines. Replace or trim Please consider replacing very tall trees near power lines with a lower growing species. If this isn’t possible, then please make sure that they are well maintained with branches kept away from overhead lines and poles. When planting trees near overhead lines, please be aware of their growth habit. A little shrub of a vigorous growing species can quickly become a giant tree. Be safe If you need to remove or prune trees near overhead lines, then please contact us and we’ll refer you to contractors experienced in tree trimming around power lines. Please remember to stay well clear of fallen power lines and trees on power lines. Be prepared Following a major storm you could be without power for days, or longer. If you require electricity to run your home or business please consider investing in an alternate power source to cover emergencies, and the basics like heating and cooking.
