Service Wire Clearance

For safety reasons, it is recommended that trees be cut before they grow within 1 metre of an insulated electric service line and 2 metres of a bare wire electric service line.

If the trees are closer than the clearances above or if cutting may cause any branches to fall onto electric lines, do not cut them down yourself. Contact a trained and experienced expert in vegetation management.

Vegetation failure and environmental conditions such as strong winds can cause power lines to clash, cutting power to your home, starting a fire or causing the power line to fall to the ground where it could injure or electrocute someone.

Reasons to clear vegetation

At Royal Tree Services, we can come and assess your tree(s) and advise you on what part of the tree should be pruned back to ensure that vegetation is kept a safe distance from power lines. Reduce the chances of vegetation failure and environmental conditions such as strong winds can cause power lines to clash, cutting power to your home, starting a fire or causing the power line to fall to the ground where it could injure or electrocute someone.
