Wood Cutting Safety


Electricity is never far away, so you always need to be cautious. If you cut wood, look up before you start, and avoid trees that are anywhere near power lines.

Avoid cutting trees near power lines. Cutting trees around power lines should only be attempted by trained professionals. Serious injuries and even fatalities can occur when untrained individuals attempt to do this work themselves.

Never attempt to remove a tree that has fallen into a power line. Call us at 1-800-474-5711.
