Utility Line Clearance Services

Your premier local tree service company and The Utility’s regional prime contractor. Our main area of focus is maintaining power line clearance for both public and private utility lines to ensure public safety.

Utility tree pruning is performed to direct tree growth away from power lines using the directional pruning method recommended by the Arbor Day Foundation, the International Society of Arboriculture [ISA], and the American National Standard Institute [ANSI-A300 & Z-133]. Unfortunately, the property owner is not always happy with the prescribed treatment for the tree. But, utility tree work is done to reduce power outages, promote safety and comply with required clearance. By planting Utility Line “friendly” trees, the property owner can reduce the necessary trimming and property access required to maintain CPUC requirements.

FTS follows Cal-Osha, ANSI, I.S.A., California Public Utility Commission, and PG&E standards. We strive for customer satisfaction, public safety, and timely debris management with minimal impact to your daily life and property.
If you notice any debris with FTS red flagging, or have some additional work that needs to be done, please call our office at (707) 984-6629.
