Trees & Powerlines

Trees and powerlines: What you need to know

Trees that are too close to power lines can be hazardous. If a tree on private property is close to a power line, it is the responsibility of both the land owner and the lines owner to ensure the tree doesn’t become a safety hazard.

There are specific regulations regarding how vegetation clearing of lines needs to occur. It is recommended that any individual looking at line clearance checks with their local lines regulators first prior to undertaking any work.  

How can Treetech help?

We are approved contractors for clearing trees from power lines, so you can trust us to take care of the proper reduction and shaping of trees around power lines. Being an approved contractor means that we have the necessary equipment specific to jobs of this nature, are WorkSafe compliant for health and safety, and have full professional indemnity insurance cover.
