It is often that we coordinate with Dominion VA Power to either cut back limbs to close to power lines or have Dominion drop power while we cut the trees that are in close proximity to power lines. OSHA’s rule is that private tree companies do not work within 15′ of high tension power lines – pole to pole. The 220 service drops or pole to house lines are shielded, with much less current running through them so its OK for private tree services to work close to them, with extra care. JL Tree Service Inc has the necessary equipment such as aerial lifts and large cranes to help remove large trees in close proximity to houses that are in decline or dead/dying.
Nick Shively, our certified arborist for this area wrote a great article identifying some of the current tree related issues to keep a lookout for. Usually, if you see the frass from the Ambrosia beetle as an example in the picture above, its time to get the tree removed unfortunately. Assessing a tree for decline and catching it early can potentially save the mature tree.
A few years back, a storm burst hit the Del Ray area in Alexandria pretty hard. I remember driving up the streets in Del Ray seeing a different tree company at every other house, it was a pretty astonishing site. Our company took many trees of roofs for commercial and residential customers. Our cranes and tree crews stayed busy with this storm for an entire week performing emergency tree services.
