Is my tree a candidate for removal?

Situations where tree removal may be preferable to line clearance pruning include:

  • Tall or fast-growing species growing directly under the power lines that require frequent pruning and will never have a natural form
  • Saplings (brush) with the potential to grow into or close to the lines
  • Large, previously topped trees under the lines
  • Trees with a high risk of failure (examples – leaning, in decline, severe dieback, cracked, split, hollow, etc)
