Clearing tree and trimming branches near live power lines is dangerous work requiring the specialized training and equipment we provide our power line clearance team at Raritan Valley Tree Service.
Since the power lines running through your neighborhood carry at least 7 – 13 kV, doing any type of work around them, including tree work, is especially dangerous. When you take into account the height factors involved in trimming tree branches with sharp metal tools, the hazards of power line clearance work are exceptional. Homeowners and others who have not completed the specialized training required to remove trees and trim limbs near power lines should not attempt to do this work.

The Advantage of an Arborist-Led Power Line Clearance Tree Service
At one time, property owners dreaded crews clearing limbs around power lines because they tended to top the crown of the trees, which led to decay and disease. In contrast, our tree service experts, under the supervision of a certified arborist, use directional pruning. This tree trimming technique involves removing only the branches growing toward the power line. Since more leaves are left on the branches and limbs, the tree is stronger and more disease, insect, and decay resistant when trimmed using directional pruning practices.
