We can help make your trees safe and compliant
If your trees are too close to powerlines or you’ve received a Western Power notice? We can help make your trees safe and compliant.
If trees or branches come into contact with powerlines, they can cause safety hazards, power outages, or even bushfires. Property owners and occupiers are responsible for ensuring trees on their property stay clear of powerlines all year round. Clearance zones may vary in your area depending on the type of conductor, the fire risk of the area, and the distance between two poles.
Allow for reasonable regrowth when trimming your trees, so they can be maintained outside the clearance zones all year round. To keep it simple, you can follow the below standards to maintain a minimum safe distance between your trees and powerlines.
