Clearing from powerlines

Many times it's wrong tree wrong place. People don't look up when planting a tree and it's not a problem till years later when the tree is deemed a hazard and is cut back or simply removed. Then they are screaming because the utility HAD to prune or remove because its a hazard to electrical service and/or the public.

What if a child were to climb the tree and a branch made contact with the energized line?? Then what would people say? Probably be screaming why haven't you pruned or removed these trees is my guess.

Our society demands uninterrupted electrical service 24-7/365 a year but in a lot of cases fights tooth and nail against letting the electrical companies do their job to provide that service. Pretty laughable if you ask me....
