Trees and Powerlines

Did you know that tree limbs and branches that come into contact with power lines are a primary cause of power outages during severe weather?

Here's what you need to know about trees and powerlines.

Tree-Trimming for Reliability and Safety - 2019 Tree-Trimming Schedule and Map

During severe weather, trees can cause power outages when branches come into contact with power lines.

To prevent power outages, we contract Asplundh Canada ULC to trim trees on a three-year cycle to maintain safe clearance around power lines in Guelph and Rockwood.

Asplundh's professional arborists use natural pruning methods to maintain the health of the trees. Pruning clearances around primary lines must be at least three metres and at least one metre around secondary lines but may be more for fast-growing species.

More information about tree-trimming can be found in Electrical Safety Authority booklet entitled: Trimming Trees Around Powerlines.

2019 Tree-Trimming Schedule

Between January and May, 2019, Asplundh will be trimming trees in Rockwood and the three sections that make up Area #3 in Guelph as illustrated on the map below.

As per our normal procedures, at least three days before Asplundh crews arrive in a neighbourhood, customers will receive a hand-delivered notice indicating that trees in the area will be trimmed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our arborist:

Telephone: 1-866-232-5845

Planting Trees on Your Property

We work very hard to provide a reliable supply of electricity but we need your help.

If you are thinking of planting trees on your property, consider the location of overhead powerlines and review the Planting Under or Around Powerlines and Electrical Equipment pamphlet produced by the Electrical Safety Authority.

Tree-Trimming on Your Property

Never attempt to trim any vegetation growing near or on any overhead power lines. These lines are generally not insulated and can be deadly if touched by a tree limb or ladder.

When hiring landscapers or yard workers to trim your trees, remember to ask if they are licensed, insured and qualified to trim vegetation around power lines.

For the health and beauty of your tree, and for your family's safety, we strongly recommend contacting a qualified line-clearance arborist to trim and maintain your trees -- especially trees near power lines.

For more information consult the Trimming Trees Around Electrical Powerlines booklet produced by the Electrical Safety Authority.
