Safe tree trimming
In some situations you will need to clear vegetation but in many circumstances it will require expert tree trimmers authorised to work around live powerlines.
The image below shows the vegetation clearance zones required around powerlines and power poles.
Please read carefully
You may not trim trees yourself if:
- The tree that has to be maintained is closer than 3 metres to a powerline.
- Any part of your body or equipment comes within 3 metres of a powerline.
- The tree is above a powerline regardless of the distance between the tree and powerline.
