Power Line Clearance & Tree Trimming

Union

Line clearance/tree trimmer engages in a variety of tree care operations to maintain power line right of way intended to prevent interruption of service. Much of this work is done in the vicinity of energized, high voltage power lines and includes tree pruning, tree removal, and brush clearing. Trimmers use both powered and hand tools, some insulated to prevent electric shock,
as well as bucket trucks and heavy equipment.
