We care about your safety
Have you received a utility line clearance notice in the mail?
Trees and powerlines are not a safe combination. It’s an even greater risk when homeowners take matters into their own hands to fix the problem. Trees and branches should be maintained a safe distance from power lines to avoid any potential risk and it’s best to conduct preventative maintenance before the trees become a problem. But if the situation is a bit close for comfort at your property, or you’ve been issued a notice to rectify the problem, we can help.
Whose responsibility is it to manage trees near power lines?
Many homeowners are unaware who is responsible for managing trees that are close to power lines as it differs between councils and states. However, you are ultimately responsible for the trees on your property and should seek a qualified arborist so they maintain a safe distance from power and telephone lines.
It’s never advisable to undertake work like this yourself. Working near power lines should only be done by licensed and experienced providers.
How can we help?
We’re qualified to perform tree trimming close to both low and high voltage power lines. Before starting, we conduct a risk assessment to set a course of action that complies with the requirements of the notice.
We also take the stress out of applying for any required permits. We’ve made it our business to know what is required for all types of tree clearing and can help you obtain a positive response to your application.
You can also speak to us if you’re planning a new garden. We can provide planting advice on the best trees and greenery that will have suitable growth expectations around overhead powerlines.
