Tree work near electric Wires!

Posted: 11/11/2014 at 14:10

Oh really! The wires actually run close to the trunk! could mean removing half the crown if that's the case. She wouldn't be upset to see the whole tree go, but I don't suppose they would remove all of it. I've seen poplar tree with have the crown missing due to this sort of work, looked awful but I guess they are safe now.

My sister moved house last year and was aware of a pine tree on her property which had electric wire running through the crown of the tree. Western power distribution, have said work needs to be carried out on the tree. The question Is how much are they allowed to remove from the tree?

Lots of smells remind me of my parents garden as a child, the nice ones are fresh cut grass and brushing against lavenders and thymes, not so nice are melianthus foilage smelling like peanut butter and curry plants smelling like celery!
