Trees and Power Lines…Bad Combo!

Did you know that nearly a quarter of the unplanned power outages you may have experienced in Northern Nevada are caused by trees and other vegetation growing too close to power lines? In high winds, trees can be blown onto power lines, causing the lines to short-circuit, and can also cause major damage to electrical equipment, resulting in power interruptions.

Here are some helpful tips -


1.  Trees should be a certain distance from electrical conductors.

2.  Subscribing liability to those who are guilty of that distancing.

3.  Find the right company to safely remove a tree.

That last part is easy in Northern Nevada. It is the aptly named Tree Professional of Reno. They have safely removed trees from properties throughout the area for many years. Greg and his team know that it is always safety first! See their amazing work by googling Call day or night at (775) 420-8694.
