Frequently Asked Questions
There are electricity lines presently running through trees on my property. Is it ok for me to cut them?
Only tree cutting contractors should attempt cutting trees near power lines due to the threat of electrocution should you come into contact with live wires. Under no circumstances should you attempt to cut them yourself.
Can you just trim the branches or will you have to cut down trees completely?
Our typical approach is to trim branches back a safe distance. We will assess each case on its own merit before deciding on the appropriate action. If trees are in an unstable condition and pose a danger to electricity lines, we will cut them down completely.
