It is never a good combination when it comes to power lines and trees. Electric shocks cause most tree worker injuries and deaths, but not from touching the actual power lines. This is usually caused by a secondary source, such as a pruning tool or tree branch that touches a wire. Regardless of the voltage in the wire, if the power is headed straight to your home, it can cause severe damage and even compromise other electrical components in your home electrical system. There’s no doubt that power and other utility lines require extreme caution and care, and that’s why Southern Star Tree recommend leaving it to the professionals.
The last thing you want is catastrophic damage during tree removal or maintenance, and that’s why it is advisable to onboard an expert to minimize long hours in tree services, assess proximity to utility lines, and ensure the safety of your home and property. A tree service company has extensive industry knowledge and experience, ensuring that a plan is designed before work can begin work around the utility lines. At Southern Star Tree, we prioritize the security of our customers during every job we take on, ensuring you only pay for the tree services and not unnecessary damages.
Most homeowners prefer taking on issues into their own hands, leading to severe damages and injuries. While some are minor and can be handled without a lot of expertise or specialized tools, some should be left to a professional before you incur a significant dent in your finances. If a tree in your premises needs to be removed, but it is near a power line, chances of a DIY going from bad to worse are higher.
Regardless of how easy it looks, attempting tree removal is not recommended, even though it is just cutting down a few branches. We leverage state-of-the-art tools and equipment to enhance tree removal without compromising quality and safety. We also ensure that our team is fully protected with the right gear since removing a tree near any utility line without precision, experience, and knowledge increases disaster risk.
