Description

Electrical utility lines serve nearly every neighborhood, adding efficiency and luxury to every day of our lives. Likewise, trees enhance our neighborhoods and bring beauty to our surroundings. Trees improve our air and water quality. They shade our homes, screen undesirable views, and help reduce noise along with many other ecosystem services. For us to have both trees and electrical lines, those two things must share space where they sometimes conflict with each other. This publication outlines the issues surrounding the conflict between trees and electrical utility lines as well as ways to avoid that conflict.
