Trees, Electricity & Winter Care
Trees and electricity go together like…well, on one hand like Christmas lights brightly shining through the green foliage of a beautifully adorned Christmas tree; on the other hand, like a lightning bolt shattering a mighty pine into a million toothpicks. In between is the most dangerous part of tree care work – working around power lines.
Please – leave pruning near power lines to trained professionals (like Legacy Tree Company staff!). Too many homeowners come out on the bad end of a power line + tree interaction. Electricity is tricky stuff, it loves to jump from conductor to conductor in its rush to ground. Tree branches, pruning tools, ladders and people – all make good pathways for this grounding. Don’t be a statistic – stay away from power lines in trees!
On the first hand…there is nothing an arborist loves so much as a beautiful Christmas tree, complete with lovely lights (speaking for myself at least!). Get all festive on that tree in the living room. If you have a large conifer outside, consider hiring us to deck it out for you – we have the equipment to safely get up high in the canopy. Winter is considered to be a great time to prune Evergreen trees. Christmas lights, pruning, pest & disease management? We’ve got you covered. We are always trying to provide the best Albuquerque tree service!
