Our program comprises of:
An annual check of our powerlines for trees and other vegetation within the clearance zone. We also check the service wire connecting a property for any encroachment within the property. These inspections are carried out by our authorised contractor – specialists in inspection WA vegetation.
Notification of the responsible party (occupant/land owner/ local government authority) via a 40 day notice.
Re-inspection and cutting back of any vegetation that remains in clearance by a second contractor. These cuts (also called a default cut) are performed solely to maintain a safe reliable network.
We may recover the cost of cutting if a tree we have cut has been cultivated, either by planting, deliberate irrigation or pruning for any other reason than clearance from powerlines. This charge is $419.27 per span*. (length of wires from one pole to the next). If tree branches on your property needed clearing from wires either side of a pole you would be charged $838.54 for clearing two spans.
