Powerline Clearing Canberra
Property owners have a reponsibility to ensure the clearance of their trees away from powerlines. Powerline clearing is a dangerous activity which requires a trained professional to avoid hazards such as electrocution.
Regular powerline clearing is recommended to avoid expensive issues and potential damage from fallen branches or trees, particularly during sudden storms.
If you have a received a letter requesting you to cut your trees back around powerlines, it is recommended you choose a trained, professional team with the best clearing equipment and machinery, insurance, and regular training. In the ACT, an Evoenergy accredited tree surgeon must be used to clear powerlines.
Equipment used for powerline clearing includes elevated work platforms and pole saws.
An accredited tree removal team can arrange the necessary paperwork to shut down nearby high voltage powerlines while the work is being performed, although most work is carried out near ‘live’ lines. Tree removal companies can also assist in clearing debris following storm damage.
