The High Voltage Safety Act: Utility & Commercial Arboriculture - Working Together

Utilities, tree companies, and arborists must coexist and work together, so let’s make those interactions positive and successful!

We will also touch on incidental line clearance certification and the 811 Process for requesting scheduled power outages.
