When you are trimming a tree, you can either help or destroy trees. When the right practices are used, trimming can ultimately provide significant benefits. When inconvenient practices are used, significant harm can follow.

Placentia Tree trimmingis dedicated to maintaining its infrastructure in a manner that helps ensure the safety of its employees, customers, and community. A huge part of our company is that we have placed a huge commitment is trimming or removing trees that are too close to the power lines and may be likely to cause power outages or create a safety hazard.
Why do we Undertake Tree Trimming?
- Storm Restoration
- Tree Health
We Trim Trees for SafetyUntidy trees or limbs near power lines are a real danger and can pose a serious danger to unsuspecting children or adults. They may unintentionally come in contact with a live power line while climbing a tree.
Appropriate vegetation clearance on the power lines allows for much safer access by personnel during any restoration effort. By maintaining this clearance, we can restore customer power much more safely and efficiently.
Power lines usually have an average capacity of 34,500 volts and can be deadly. Do not dare try to touch an electrical wire. In all cases always assume it is conducting electricity and is dangerous.
Therefore, if you are planning to trim or get rid of a tree near any power or service line, please contact us or via the "Contact Us" page of this Web site. Trained personnel can identify potential reliability or safety threats and advise you what can be done.
We Trim for Storm RestorationAfter a storm, Placentia Tree trimming priority is to restore power. We try to do this as quickly and safely as we can. We will clear downed trees and limbs that interfere with our power lines and equipment to facilitate safety and service restoration.
