Identifying Trees That Can Threaten The Safety Of Power Lines

Published by:

Hermine was the first hurricane to make a landfall in Florida after more than a decade. Severe damage was experienced so that even residents have to help out clean debris it left. JEA crews have to work hard to protect power lines from the threat of trees and fallen limbs. The utility company has a program that was designed to prune problem limbs without asking for any fees from those who qualify to maintain their power lines.

How does JEA identify trees and limbs that pose a threat to power lines? Generally, the higher the wires, the higher will be their voltage while wires that are within canopies are not really of great concern because they are not electrical hazards. Most of the wires that are within the tree canopies include communication lines, cable lines and telecommunication lines like AT&T. Wires that are above the street lights are generally part of the electrical distribution system that have potential electrical hazard regarding trees.

According to Joe Anderson of JEA, homeowners must make sure that there are no limbs around the service drop or the line that drops from the pole and provides power to a home. Homeowners must also ensure that there are no strains or abrasions on the wire for electrical safety purposes. Anderson also explained the job of odd C-shaped tree pruning. This technique is also called as directional pruning or natural target pruning where tree limbs are cut to direct its growth away from the wires to minimize the hazard.

As preventive measure, it is important to plant trees in the right places. Low to medium-sized trees can be grown underneath power lines; they can co-exist without any problems. To avoid a C-shaped look, the pruning process must be good and handled by professional arborists. This is particularly important for historic neighborhoods where the scenic view must be preserved.

Pruning when done by the experts of Tree lopper Perth will ensure a healthy tree that will live for years. Pruning is a maintenance task that should never be ignored because it could establish good branch structure to beautify the environment.

Beetle Infestation Led To Trees Being Cut Down

Published by:

A current infestation of emerald ash borers began to affect the trees surrounding the entire city of Titusville in Pennsylvania. When the invasive species lives on the ash trees, these trees are considered to pose a safety hazard to the general public. This is because the larvae of the said exotic beetle have the capacity to drain it of its moisture thus the tree no longer has the capacity to feed itself.

The invasion that was found in the trees all over the city was reported by the Titusville Shade Tree Commission and was reported to the city council. This was done last June 21 during a council meeting. Proper measures are now being taken in order to eliminate all the infested trees that are in the city.

During the June meeting of the city council, Lynn Cressman who is a member of the council said that the invasion of the ash borer has been a quick process. She also referred to the situation which possesses a potential danger as a small crisis.

Based on the data posted by a website that has been tracking the spread of the species, emeraldashborer.info, the ash borer invasion in the state of Pennsylvania started way back in June 27 of 2007 when it was first documented.

An ultimate decision was made by the city council which is to not give any more additional funds for the cost of eliminating the trees that have been infected. It was only last week that a tree service crew was found to be busy in the downtown area while removing four different trees that have been infested. These trees are located inside the Scheide Park which is near West Central Avenue.

According to the tree service, they have already removed around 10 infected trees. The process has to be done very carefully since the infested trees are already very brittle. The tree service company said that they have been hired by the Shade Tree Commission to eliminate around 25 infested trees all over the city before the end of this year.

If you are in Perth, you can also contact your local tree service company for various services including tree stump removal in Perth.
