Ascents Tree Service works with private contractors clearing trees that are encroaching on your power lines. In Ontario, a resident is responsible for all power lines running across their property. It is important to invest in regular pruning and clearing to reduce or prevent the chances of downed trees cutting off power.
As climate change creates more and severe storms, where ice storms like this one just passed becomes a regular occurrence, it is more important than ever to keep your lines clear. Consider implementing a regular pruning cycle, in the summer, when a shutdown will not create frozen pipes or inconvenience your family. This is best done during summer vacation. With power off, arborists can trim or remove problematic trees, so that severe weather does not leave you the last in the dark.
