Who will be performing the work on my trees?
Only qualified utility line clearance professional arborists who meet OSHA qualifications are legally permitted to work within 10 feet of power lines or work on a tree that has branches within 10 feet of power lines. Line clearance arborists are trained to prune trees according to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A-300 pruning standards and follow industry best practices, which helps preserve the health of trees.
DANGER: Homeowners should never hire a private tree contractor to work within 10 feet of power lines or attempt to do the work themselves. The utility should always be contacted for information first.
