Why branches and utility lines don’t mix. Most people in the Greater Cleveland area have first-hand experience of the havoc and inconvenience that takes place when branches meet power lines. All it takes is one fallen limb in inclement weather to take down an electrical line, which can leave hundreds without power. Overgrown trees can lead to significant damage of utilities, with power lines snapped, poles broken, and structures toppled. The only way to avoid such accidents is to make sure that electrical lines on your Cuyahoga County residential or commercial property remain clear of any encroaching vegetation.
When Trees and Power Lines Occupy the Same Space
Safety First When Working Near Power Lines
Only a professional arborist is qualified to perform line clearance services in Northeast Ohio. Trimming, pruning, and removing hazardous trees near live power lines is incredibly risky. Because of this, arborists must obtain line clearance qualification from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to work within 10 feet of an overhead utility. In addition to rigorous safety training, professional arborists who work in the Greater Cleveland area have access to special equipment and non-conductive tools that are safe to use around power lines. Similarly, only professional arborists or utility workers should approach downed power lines and branches on the ground; to the untrained eye, it is impossible to tell whether an electrical line is still live!
