Don’t Let Nature Get in the Way of Northeast Ohio Utilities

Keeping utilities free and clear. In Northeast Ohio and elsewhere in the country, commercial and residential property owners are responsible for keeping utility owned property and rights-of-way clear of vegetation. This is important, because utility companies must always be able to access power lines or gas pipes for routine maintenance and repair. The ramifications for not keeping utility-related spaces clear can be quite dire; all it takes is one branch falling in the wrong place to take down an electric pole and leave a whole neighborhood without power.

Some common examples of utility-related tree care and maintenance in the Cleveland area include:

  • Removing saplings and shrubs that have begun to grow in a utility right-of-way, and creating a landscape maintenance plan to ensure that the area remains clear in the future.
  • Leveling and removing trees to create a new haul road through a wooded commercial property, taking into consideration the road’s width, grade, and drainage.
  • Pruning or trimming tree limbs that threaten to disrupt a high-voltage electrical line should they fail.

Why Hire a Tree Care Professional for a Utility-Related Job?

Simply put, because working around utilities can be very dangerous! Most landscaping utility jobs require heavy machinery (such as chainsaws and bulldozers) or maneuvering around hazardous power lines or piping. Because of these very real safety concerns, it takes special training for an individual to be able to do landscape work around most utilities. For example, to trim trees within 10 feet of an overhead electrical line, you need to receive special training from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. As you can see, any tree care or landscaping job that relates to utilities calls for a professional!
