Trees & Power Lines

Nelson Electricity Limited Tree Powerline Brochure

Coming into contact with power lines can be extremely hazardous and can cause serious injury or death. The dangers should not be under-estimated. Nelson Electricity realises that tree trimming around power lines is not something the public generally has expertise in. We recommend you hire professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out this work or make contact with Nelson Electricity who can assist and advise in this matter.

The Tree Powerline Brochure provides you with general information about the dangers posed by contact between trees and live power lines, the areas around live lines that need to be kept clear and other information the regulations require. Please download the PDF from the list below.
