Be Careful With The Trees, Please!
Are you planning to clear land or get rid of dead trees? Trees on power lines can create dangerous situations. Never try to remove a tree or limbs from a power line. Cutting down trees is serious business, and observing a few rules will help you accomplish your task safely.
Are you planting a tree?
Look up!Don't dig that hole under a power line, or even near it. Remember that little seedlings will someday have big branches that can tangle in power lines. And if branches break in a windstorm or bend down in an ice storm, they can interrupt service for you and others on the line. Ozark Border spends thousands of dollars every year just trimming trees which threaten service. So plan ahead when you plant trees. With a little foresight, we can enjoy them without risk.
