Trees and power lines

We inspect street trees near power lines and program our pruning accordingly. Pruning is usually minor, as the previous year’s work sets the branch framework and we only need to remove regrowth. Occasionally a tree may need additional work, but the percentage is small considering we manage more than 50,000 trees.

Download our Electric Line Clearance Management Plan (PDF, 2MB), or get a hard copy between 8am and 4pm weekdays from Park Services, 730 Inkerman Road, Caulfield North.

We update the Electric Line Clearance Management Plan in July each year. We’ll action other pruning requests on an individual basis after inspection by a qualified arborist (usually within 30 days), and attend to urgent works as a priority.
