Power Line Trimming
Power line trimming is the process of cutting down tree branches to avoid collision with power lines. For areas that don’t use an underground power network, power lines are everywhere and there are occasions where tall trees and powerlines come in contact. In cases like this, to avoid accidents or unnecessary damage, power line trimming services are required to keep the trees at bay. Different methods of power line trimming can be used to avoid these accidents and a few will be discussed later on. If you need a power line trimming service, we offer the best available in the city. We have a very efficient team who are experienced in the tree trimming service in general. If you require a power line trimming services, don’t hesitate, give us a call.
This method involves the removal of branches around the crown or canopy area. In other words, all extending branches around the top of the tree are cut down. This process is fast as there is no protocol or a particular way it has to be done. All you are doing is cutting branches closest to the top. This method however isn't particularly healthy for the plant as branches with severed ends tend to grow sprout, leaving the wooden parts of the branch dead. These dead cells could spread to the tree itself and cause damage. If this continues for a while, it could cause the untimely death of the tree.
This is somewhat similar to topping except it comes with precision and specificity. Directional pruning is the removal of branches just like topping except you only remove branches closest to the power line. Instead of removing all the top branches, only those closest to the power line are severed. This is a very healthy method compared to topping as branches are not severed unethically, they are only severed at specific points (usually where two branches meet)
It is better to take precautions when planting a tree close to a power line than having to destroy or continually trim just to avoid accidents. Before you plant any tree anywhere, adequate research has to be made. You don’t want to plant one of the tallest trees in the world close to a power line (you will definitely be frustrated trying to maintain as the tree will continue to grow rapidly). you need to gather information about how large the tree could get while approaching adulthood in order to avoid inaccurate predictions.
This is the ultimate solution to any tree that proves to be stubborn. Some trees have extremely fast growth and trees like these shouldn’t be planted close to power lines especially when their adult size is gigantic. Tree removal refers to the uprooting or cutting down of trees from a certain location. This method is effective and permanent as trees removed are relocated, reused, or destroyed.
