Trees and powerlines can be a dangerous mix if they come into contact with one another, causing fires, electrocutions and power outages.
As a property owner, you are responsible for maintaining any trees from the fence line inside your property, which interact with the service wire.
The service wire is the single wire running from the main powerlines on your street directly to your property. Energex are responsible for maintaining the large powerlines.
Your tree should not come within one meter of the service line and must be properly pruned to avoid this happening.
You should never attempt to prune a tree near a service line unless you know what you’re doing, as if you touch the wire, especially while holding electric or metal equipment you can electrocute or seriously injure yourself.
Working with local electrical companies, Cut It Right Tree Service can organise to have power to the services wire turned off for a short period of time to properly prune the trees back, ensuring the work is done safety and to a correct standard.
The first thing we need to do is assess your situation, here we are not only looking at the tree(s) being removed but also any dangers around the area or underground that could be affected by the removal of the tree(s). Cut It Right Tree Service offer a FREE tree inspection service within the Mornington Peninsula. The inspection usually only takes 15 - 20 minutes and will give us a good opportunity to understand your specific needs.
Once we have assessed the trees we will then provide you with a written quotation. In some cases a permit form the council may be required to remove the tree(s), if so we will give you all the information and assistance you will need to acquire them. If you have happy with our quote and wish to proceed we can set up a time and date to start your job.
A time will be arranged prior to the day. Upon arrival we are already scanning the area looking for hazards (powerlines, plumbing, telephone, gas, water) and ways to protect your property. We will hold a small toolbox meeting with you that will confirm the job details before starting. During the course of the removal you will notice our team communication throughout the process. We have one team in the tree and one team clearing the debris on the ground. Once the removal is complete the team tidy the area and return any moved property back to its original position (tables, chairs and pot plants etc.).
When you ask for a quote, it ought to be fair and competitively priced. It is a good idea to procure two or three different estimates. This will help you decide which company you want to hire to get the job done. Additionally, this will help you make an informed decision by comparing the companies and people you will be dealing with.
