Cape may Tree Service Gives Advice on Why Not To Cut Down Trees Near Power Lines

Laricks Complete Tree Service has just announced that it has posted a new blog on its website that discusses why not to cut down trees near power lines. It was important for this Cape May, NJ tree services provider to add this new blog to its website because of the importance that it places on keeping safety at the forefront when it comes to tree work. Even the slightest contact a branch of a tree has with a power line becomes a very dangerous situation. This and other situations regarding trees encroaching upon or contacting power lines can be seen in the new blog here at

The company owner, Mikey Laricks, says, “It’s no secret that many people in Cape May and the surrounding areas like to do their own tree trimming but when it comes to trimming trees near power lines this should always be left to professionals. That’s because one wrong move could lead to disaster and heartache. That’s why we decided to take the time to write a new blog that discusses this very subject in more detail. I sincerely hope those that read our latest blog strongly consider the information it contains and it convinces them not to do any type of tree trimming near power lines around their property.”

This Laricks Complete Tree Service blog starts by talking about how trimming trees that are encroaching upon power lines is not only dangerous but in many communities, it’s also illegal. It then discussed how many people do not realize that trees make excellent conductors of electricity because of their high water content. So, when someone comes into contact with a tree that is touching a power line there is the possibility that they will complete an electrical circuit and there is a chance that electrocution could result.

The blog also mentioned that there really is no reason for people that have trees growing too close to power lines to be tempted to trim them themselves. That’s because this is a tree task that is the responsibility of the local utility company. Just a simple phone call to a person’s local power provider alerting them that there is a problem should be enough to get those trees trimmed in short order. The only charge to the customer in most instances is the cleanup involved after the trees have been trimmed which is perfectly safe for the customer to undertake themselves. It was also discussed in the blog how a professional tree service like theirs can help in this situation. The blog noted that for tree emergencies involving branches contacting power lines that may be causing sparking or smoking, it’s best to immediately call the local power provider. For all other instances of trees encroaching upon power lines, they would be more than happy to do an inspection and guide the customer on how to proceed from there.
