When tree limbs grow too close to power lines they can cause damage or interrupt your service. They could also create a safety hazard to you, your neighbors, or children who like to climb trees.
- Do not allow children to climb or play in any tree located near a power line.
- Contact with the wires could result in severe injury or death.
- Especially during damp weather, electrical shock can occur when a person touches a tree that is touching a wire. It is not necessary to actually touch the wire itself to sustain a serious or even fatal electric shock.
