Trees growing through power lines are dangerous because they create a potential path for electricity to travel directly to the ground. People that come into contact with this path (by touching, climbing, trimming or cutting down the trees) may put themselves at serious risk of being electrocuted or receiving significant electrical burns.
Trees near power lines are also a serious fire risk in dry weather conditions…and, yes leaves or branches touching lines can catch fire! The most important thing to remember in Northern Nevada is that tree owners are responsible for keeping their trees away from network electricity lines. Their family’s safety as well as the public’s is at stake.
