Contact between trees and power lines can be dangerous. If power lines fall to the ground because of storms or other interference, they can still be live. Electrocution and injury can even occur when someone touches a tree branch which has been in contact with a power line.
Never approach or touch power lines. Always let our highly trained professionals deal with fallen or sagging power lines.
If in doubt, call us on 131 626. For more information about staying safe around electricity, visit Energy Safe Victoria.
It’s very important that we maintain vegetation clearance around power lines to ensure that the supply to your home or business is safe.
In strong winds branches can fall down or fly loose and damage power lines leading to outages.
To reduce the risk of these situations occurring our crews work tirelessly to assess each and every span of power line on our network and prune vegetation in a way that ensures the health of the tree is maintained as well as achieving a safe outcome.
